Meet Oreo! Oreo is a sweet, calm and reserved iggie, who just turned 8 in May. She is being fostered in Fort Mill, SC. She's shy around new people but warms up once she gets to know you. In time, she'll shower you with kisses. Oreo came in overweight but with exercise and diet, she's slimmed down to 18 lbs and is much more agile now! She's very close to a perfect, healthy weight which we continue to work on. She loves snuggling with her person but is also up for long walks (she walks amazingly well on a leash!) or just hanging out in the yard. She enjoys protecting the yard from all unwanted intruders such as birds, squirrels, grasshoppers etc., so rest assured, you're protected. She gets along great with other iggies but dislikes cats. Oreo's potty habits are great, she knows how to use a doggie door but since the foster home doesn't have one, she lets you know that she needs to go outside by standing next to the back door. You just need to watch for these subtle clues. Oreo crates well for short periods of time when you're gone during the day and although she'd prefer to sleep in your bed with you, she will sleep all night in her crate. Oreo has been the perfect foster dog and she would love a forever home with perhaps another iggie and a fenced in yard to run and roll in the grass to her hearts content.

Picolo (Pico) 13 year old Pico is a true gentleman! A shy guy who really just wants to spend the day snuggling under a blanket with you; but if you're too busy, a warm, sunny spot will do. A calm environment is a must, and with lots of gentle praise, you'll have this boy laying on your chest in no time! He's housebroken, and loves his daily walks. He's lived with Myshka his whole life, but is timid by nature, so he keeps to himself and will always let others go first. No small children please, older kids are ok and will eventually become his snuggle buddies. Soft foods only, as several of his top teeth have been removed. Pico is a healthy boy, and when his foster took him in, he was on anti-anxiety meds, but he's been successfully weaned off those and gets by just fine with CBD drops and lavender essential oils. He's looking for a retired or works-from-home furever companion who will love him for the kind, gentle boy that he is. Myshka (Meesh) Shhhh. Don't tell 13 year old Myshka that she's an Iggy! Meesh is completely housebroken and not only tells you when she has to go out, she'll happily go no matter the weather! Cold, rain, wind, no problem! Shovel her a path and a clear spot in the snow, and she's there! What?! This girl's super easy to live with, preferring to snooze away the day in her doggy bed, covered entirely under her favorite blanket. She has a real talent for covering herself up! She loves her daily walks and although she's lived her whole life with Pico, they don't really act like a bonded pair. She crate-trained, healthy, affectionate and playful and deserves a furever home! Pico and Meesh are being fostered in Denton, MD. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa. Also, please fill out an app, as they are processed in the order in which they are received: http://www.midatlanticiggyrescue.com. Picolo & Myshka are property of IGRF.

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.
