Shade is a cute, affectionate female, with a very nice personality. She is bonded with Shadow, and are hoping to be adopted together.

She just had her annual vet check and vaccinations, and is in excellent health. Shade is crate-trained, though she prefers to sleep in the bed or on the sofa with her humans or other dogs. She is paper-trained, knows how to use a dog door, though she often prefers to use paper. If she is with her companion Shadow, she can be left in a crate for extended periods of time.

  • Italian Greyhound

Say hello to 9 month old Sam and his brother Dean! They are bonded with one another and are hoping to be adopted together. When they came into rescue, they were a bit timid and unsure of people, but that has certainly changed! They are now fun loving little gentlemen and really enjoy being close to their humans. Sam is fawn colored and is on the smaller side, but he sure doesn't know it! He is so handsome and has the most beautiful crystal blue eyes! He is full of energy and loves to play! He isn't quite the kisser like his brother, but sure does love to snuggle. They are the sweetest little boys. They eat well, play hard and nap even harder! We are still working with them on house-training and are about 60% there! They both sleep with us and go a good 6-8 hours with no accidents during the night. They quickly learned to use the doggy door and know the sit command. They aren't very good on leash yet, but with time and training would be just fine! They are crate trained, but still occasionally get anxious if left alone for too long. They play well with other dogs and are currently living with a foster brother and sister. They are both neutered, caught up on vaccines and given clean bills of health from the vet! They would love to have a nice family to call their own! They are currently being fostered in Bel Air, MD.

Meet Sophie a healthy, sweet, loving 11 year old female. Sophie loves other dogs but loves her people too! Her favorite activities include car rides, walks and laying on the couch. Sophie can stay home alone for several hours without needing to go out. Did someone open the fridge? Sophie can hear the fridge open from across the house, and she is sure to remind you when it is dinner time. Although Sophie only has a few teeth she has no problem eating her food. Some of her favorite snacks include cheese and small dog training bones. At night Sophie loves to sleep with her humans but is also happy to sleep on the couch. A little assistance getting under the blanket is all she needs. Sophie is currently being fostered in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

  • Prefers home without cats
Crystal, the "love bug" is as cute as a button. She is a tiny little thing with a big personality! You'd never guess she's 8 years old because she still looks like a puppy and feels like one too! Her white coat has come in nicely with better nutrition. She is the softest IG ever. She is quite shy at first but once she gets to know you she'll bring out the sass and all the cuddles. She loves to snuggle, play with toys, and run with her foster brother. She gets along great with other dogs, even big ones, and makes friends quickly. She gets really excited about mealtime! You'll get a kick out of watching her pre-meal "performance" where she will do circles around herself and bow as she eagerly waits for her food. She is a timid slow eater, taking her time to enjoy every bite and eats better when fed alone. She is pee pad and outdoor trained. Crystal will sleep in her crate or in bed with you. We don’t think Crystal would care too much for cats as she barks at the neighbors and noise. Both girls are comfortable around older children. She arrived to foster with her bonded mate, Pye. We think possibly her mother, and they would love to stay together. Both are currently being fostered in Charleston, SC. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

  • Italian Greyhound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
This special little lady, Pye, goes with the flow. At 11 years old and a biggie iggy, she has perfect ears and a lovely laid back personality. She is a super quiet, no fuss IG. When she isn't enjoying lounging on the couch, she is very curious and always wants to check out everything. She can spend hours in the backyard looking for all the hidden treasure, and most things she sees are "treasures". She loves to walk and exercise and prefers to wear her harness. After a much needed dental, she is missing multiple teeth...but loves to eat! Add a little water to her food and she is one happy dog. Her constant tail wag alone will put a smile on your face. That partnered with her loving looks has a way of convincing you to sneak her a treat. A little love goes a long way with this one! She is pee pad and outdoor trained with a rare accident...but usually because her foster mom didn't notice since she's so quiet and low key. Pye will sleep in her crate or in bed with you. It's easy to fall in love with Pye. She has such a care-taking demeanor from her life of raising pups in a puppy mill. It's now Pyes time to be taken care of. She arrived in foster with her bonded mate Crystal, possibly her daughter. They would love to stay together. Both girls are comfortable around older children. Both are currently being fostered in Charleston, SC. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

  • Spayed/Neutered
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 11 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.

  • Italian Greyhound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet Armano! He easily makes the change from free roaming a fenced in yard to daily walks. He walks well on a leash, sniffing and doing his business quickly and very routinely. Armano has become quite vocal in his foster home, learning from the house corgi. He alerts to other animals and people whether in the house or on a walk. He tends to appear aggressive on the leash when greeting (mohawk goes up) but goes in for the greet and is okay. Armano is what people describe as a "velcro" dog, meaning he loves to be with his people at all times and prefers to have physicians contact with them whenever possible. Armano'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 in the house. 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, such as fire works or gun shots but has become accustomed to the vacuum cleaner and fire sirens. Armano has a lump on his chest which has been determined to be a fatty tumor and no treatment necessary. He is also on medication for non regenerative anemia and may need more medical testing or treatment. He is currently being fostered in DE. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Meet Masati! She is a 10 year old biggy iggy! Mastati loves food, all kinds, and makes it known she is interested in what you have, but has already worked on her manners. She has made the change from free roaming a fenced in yard to daily walks quite easily. She walks well on a leash, sniffing and doing her business, with a reward. Masati will pull with eagerness when she sees a new person or dog as she loves to meet new friends. She is delightful to everyone she meets. She has 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. She will walk all day if you take here, but also is quite the couch potato. Masati is up-to-date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered accordingly, heart worm negative and on heart worm prevention. She had a recent dental cleaning, while worn, no removals were needed. Masati is being fostered in Delaware. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.
