Hello! My name is Lita, but my foster dad thinks I should be called MeMe because I LOVE getting all of your attention! I'll even look at you with my big brown eyes in the sweetest way while I grab your hand in mine to show you where I want to be pet. I'm 14 years young but very spunky! I love to go on walks and can keep up with my brother and foster brothers. I'm very well behaved on a leash and will walk right next to you the whole way. I'm completely potty trained and know to do my business when you take me outside. I just lost 14 teeth but I do like to play with stuffed toys sometimes. I may not have a lot of teeth left, but I love to eat! It's my favorite thing next to cuddles! I get along great with other dogs; I love snuggling my brother Guido and my foster brothers! Sometimes when I'm sleeping I get startled and might snap a little if you don't wake me gently, but I won't bite, I don't have many teeth anyway. I like to make myself at home and I'm very easy going and quite comfortable finding a nice place to lie down. I'm still an Iggy though so please always keep me on a leash and keep an eye on me at all times outside! I don't jump often, but I've still got it in me when I need to. Oh and stairs are still a bit tricky for me, I can go up but like to have help coming back down. I can be a little skittish at times if you move too fast or come up behind me quietly. I do great on car rides, please keep me safe in a seat and away from airbags, but I'll ride quietly and calmly to where ever you take me! My foster parents tell me I'm just the sweetest little thing, I've got a little sass and some spunk, but ultimately, I just want to be loved!!!!! It’s highly recommended that I be adopted with my brother because we are a bonded pair. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Hello! My name is Guido and I'm nine years young. I love to go on walks and do great on a leash! I get a little nervous when other dogs walk by but if you tell me "it's ok" and talk me through it, I don't mind. But I have to be kept on a leash at all times. I get scared and can be a bit of a flight risk. I love to be outside and like being close to my human, so please be very careful if you open a door and don't want me to go out it with you. I'd love to have a fenced in yard. I can jump pretty high sometimes too though so please keep me safe. I am good about doing my business outside, but I'm still an Iggy and have accidents sometimes when I'm nervous. I love to play with toys! The more toys, the better!!! I don't chew things around the house but give me a toy and I'll keep myself busy! I get along really well with my foster brothers and I love cuddling my sister, Lita. I'm pretty timid and a little shy, I love to be loved on but please go slow and speak gently to me. I have the most precious doe eyed look and like to follow my foster mom everywhere she goes. I'm just a little uncertain about the world still but I'm learning. My foster mom calls me Cowardly Lion but she says she's sure I will find my courage. I get nervous being in a car but if you keep me safe in a car seat I'll stay put and behaved. I'm very calm, mellow and relaxed but also curious, I like to keep my eye on you whenever I can. It takes me a little time to get used to new things but I adjust and adapt well as long as you love me and stand by my side. It’s highly recommended that I be adopted with my sister because we are a bonded pair. Guido is being fostered in Dunkirk, MD. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Meet Armano, 10 year old sibling of Masati. Armano and his sister are both a bit on the plump side but are making dietary and fitness changes. They love food, all kinds, and make it known they are interested in what you have but are already working on their manners. They have made the change from free roaming a fenced in yard to daily walks quite easily. They walk well on a leash, sniffing and doing their business, with a reward. Armano is a bit more laid back than his sister and often defers to her. They're both delightful to everyone they meet on their walks, but Masati is definitely the director of the walk! Armano goes along with her and doesn't object. They have met the neighborhood puppies and older dogs, kids and adults, and respond eagerly to all. Armano is what people describe as a "velcro" dog, meaning he loves to be with his people at all times and prefers to have physicial contact with them whenever possible. He's soulful, brown eyes are captivating as he snuggles up to whomever is sitting on the couch! Armano will get as close to his person as he can while he asks for his morning kisses. He is more timid around people and dogs but does not object to visitors. He is not that enamored by his crate but will go in with a special treat and is good for several hours. He does not like loud noises like the fire alarm, vacuum cleaner and fireworks. While these two have lived together all their lives and are fostered together, it doesn't seem that they need to be adopted together. They do not play or snuggle with each other and Masati is sometimes a bully to her brother. They lay at opposite ends of the sofa. They are first time fosters and IG's for this foster family and are relatively easy. They will walk all the day if you take them but also are quite the couch potatoes. They are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered accordingly, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. Armano has a lump on his chest which has been determined to be just a fatty tumor and no treatment is necessary. Masati and Armano are being fostered in Delaware.

Meet Masati, 10 year old sibling of Armato. Masati and her brother are both a bit on the plump side but are making dietary and fitness changes. They love food, all kinds, and make it known they are interested in what you have but are already working on their manners. They have made the change from free roaming a fenced in yard to daily walks quite easily. They walk well on a leash, sniffing and doing their business, with a reward. Masati will pull with eagerness when she sees a new person or dog as she loves to meet new friends. Armano is just not that interested but does not object. They both delightful to everyone they meet. They have met the neighborhood puppies and older dogs, kids and adults, and respond eagerly to all. Masati loves her toys and can be quite protective of them with other dogs. She is content to be in her crate or room where her crate is and squeak the day away. She likes morning kisses but the rest of the day is just happy to know her human is around. She experiences some separation anxiety if her human leaves the house and she is free roaming but if crated, she can be left alone for several hours. While these two have lived together all their lives and are fostered together, it doesn't seem that they need to be adopted together. They do not play or snuggle with each other and Masati is sometimes a bully to her brother. They lay at opposite ends of the sofa.

They are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered accordingly, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. Masati needs some dental work which the foster family is researching.

  • Italian Greyhound

  • Prefers home without small kids
My name is Sophie, and I am 12 years young! Life is grand and I love everything - I love my naps, walks, scritches, eating, warm blankets, touching you, gazing into your eyes, barking, playing, smiling and treats. I am equal parts bundle of energy and lazy loaf. Sometimes I'm sweet and sometimes I'm sassy. I'm pleasantly plump and am trying to lose a little weight, so my foster parents changed up my food to a more nutritious kibble, and we go on walks sometimes. I should be able to get down to a healthier weight soon as long as my new family keeps up those habits. My food is grain-free because we think I might have an allergy that makes my skin itchy. I am potty-trained and will let you know when I need to go outside. I can go while on a leash or in a fenced-in yard. Leash walks are great - I get to sniff and explore everything and everyone we meet thinks I'm adorable. Yard walks are fun because sometimes I can do my business and run right back in or I can wander around the yard checking things out and have conversations with other neighborhood yard dogs. I am crate-trained, though I'd really rather not be in it for too long. I go in without issue almost every time. It works out for a little while if I can bury myself in my blankie and sleep. I get along with small kids just fine for short periods of time, but sometimes I don't like when I can't be in your lap with 100% of your focus. If you stop petting me, sometimes I'll whine or tap you with my paw repeatedly until you start again. Will you be my Valentine? Sophie is being fostered in Charlotte, NC.

  • Prefers home without small kids
My name is Tink aka Tinker or Tinkerbell, and I’m a seven year old happy, playful girl. My favorite things are exploring in the yard, playing with chew toys and cuddling under the blankets with my humans. I love all humans that I’ve met, including my 10-year old foster sister and her friends. I tolerate my Iggy foster sisters, but I am a bit grumpy with them and don’t like to share human time. I’d love to be your one and only! I had surgery in December after my jaw was fractured during a dental procedure – I only have a few teeth left - but I’ve recovered quickly and now enjoy kibble mixed in with my soft food. In fact, I love to eat so much, you must make sure you don’t leave food on the table or the trash can open, as I will help myself! I’m a svelte 17 pounds right now, and I will need your help to stay at my ideal weight. I was two pounds heavier when I came into rescue! I’m a confident girl, so I don’t mind if you leave me home alone, but I prefer not to be crated. I’m also not crazy about car rides. You will have to talk to me to keep me from whining the whole way. My potty habits are excellent, as long as my foster family remembers to let me outside! I do well on a leash, but I really love running around the yard and would prefer a home that has one with a secure fence to keep me safe. I'm being fostered in Potomac, MD.
