Hazel is a 7 month old, 13 lb mixed IG, with possibly beagle. She is up-to-date on all shots and was recently spayed. Her foster dad says her name should be Rosie because she has a cute little rose colored nose. Hazel is a typical puppy who loves to play, specifically tug-a-war with her foster brothers. She is crate trained, however she likes to sleep in bed at night under the covers with her foster brothers and parents. She gets along well with larger dogs, and is very interested in birds outside. Hazel is not good with small children, as they tend to scare her. She is a little shy around men at first, but has taken to her foster dad very quickly. She is super sweet and a little love muffin! She would do best going to a home that has an IG or another small or medium size dog. Hazel is being fostered in Germantown, Maryland Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Dodger (formerly known as Echo) is a 7 year-young neutered male who is very intelligent, playful, active and curious. He was raised in a home with some training, would prefer to do things his way but is fully cooperative with treat-based positive training. Dodger is energetic in play, loves tug-o-war and fetch, and is extremely attentive when you talk directly to him. Some tactics have been very successful - he runs to his place setting and sits when it's dinner time, sits on command, goes to the potty area on command, knows Get Off and Come Up, Go To Bed. He used to bark when he wanted something, now it is only a single bark when his water bowl is empty, he needs to go potty, or when he wants you to tuck him in his bed with his blankie. Don't let all this cooperation fool you though, he can be willful and knows a softy when he sees one. He will test his boundaries quite a bit at first. He is a forager for food and prone to getting into things - baby-proofing is necessary. Dodger is tolerant with other dogs, more yielding than necessary with my possessive little tyrant! Dodge wants to play tug of war but none will pick up the challenge - he sounds ferocious and pulls with all he's got! We are teaching him Bring It and Leave It, and he now expects us to Throw It when he is so obliging! He will self-entertain with certain toys or a safe bone for hours. He has a moral imperative to kill every sqeaker he finds! Dodge is good about not asking for attention when I work from home and will lay quietly in the same room. A good balance has been achieved and we'll share our tricks -er- tips! Watch the front door though: he will happily bolt and take his own sweet time deciding whether he will come when you call. His former owner felt he was not good around young children (his fosters are empty nesters). Dodger is being fostered in Charlotte, NC. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Cuddles is a 3 year old neutered male Italian greyhound who is extremely intelligent and has a mind of his own. He would prefer to do things his way than to listen to his person but can be bribed with treats sometimes, you see he likes life on his terms which is not always easy or convenient for his people. He doesn't respond well to a confrontation but he needs an experienced, firm owner as he can see right through a softy which tells him he knows how to get his way very quickly due to being very intelligent he can manipulate to get his way but a sly human can always prevail! The issue is he wants to claim items and people, he also prefers to come back into the house in his own time but that's where the treats come in handy or just being patient. He has come a long way since he joined rescue. He is crate trained, loves walking on a leash, doesn't mind getting groomed and will tolerate his teeth getting brushed. He would prefer a home that could spend more time enriching his life perhaps by taking him to agility or starting obedience training on a reward basis. This is a special boy who deserves a second chance in an amazing home with the right kind of owner. Cuddles will not do well in a home with children under the age of 16. He is being fostered in Frederick, MD. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Meet Coco the IggyX with the chocolate coat, a loving 5 year old girl who loves to cuddle up next to her people. CoCo gets along well with dogs her own size who are not dominant. While Coco is fully crate trained for short daytime away and during a good nights sleep, she would love it if you worked from home or are already retired because she loves to melt your heart with her beautiful deep brown puppy eyes. A securely fenced yard, or an apartment with a second door and a good martingale collar/leash is a must, as Coco loves to explore on her own and can slip out the door in a flash. Sheâs learning commands very quickly, such as come, sit, stay, and is eager to please if you give her lots of cuddles and pets. Coco will be a wonderful forever faithful companion to her new family, and will quickly bond with you, she is a true love bug and super sweet. CoCo is spayed, UTD on vaccines and just had a dental cleaning. Coco is being fostered in Gambrills, Maryland. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Biscuit is a very sweet and loving 13 year young, petite, but over weight iggy being fostered in Morehead City, NC. She currently weighs 17 lbs. Like most iggyâs she loves nothing better than snuggling with her person under a blanket. She will either use a doggy door to go outside to potty or will use a puppy pad and seldom has accidents. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house and will sometimes follow them around hoping for some extra attention. She is slow to trust people but has come a long way since entering foster with MAIGR. Biscuit has just started coming out of her shell and it is a delight to see her becoming more social and even playful. A quiet house without small children is recommended, as she is fearful of sudden movement. She enjoys sleeping in bed at night with her foster parents, but would also do well in a crate with her blankets. Biscuit has done well on a wet food diet and healthy snacks. Biscuit is currently working on her weight with diet control and short walks. Biscuit had some serious health issues when first rescued including mammary tumors and very bad teeth. Now that she is healthy again she is like a new dog, enjoying life for the first time. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.
