Buddy is an amazing 6 year old fawn IG male. Buddy's past was reportedly not great, so he can initially be a little apprehensive towards strangers. But the minute he finds comfort in your arms, he'll steal your heart. He loves to play, but he most loves cuddling. As with most IG's, Buddy is not immune to the occasional accident in the house. However, he has made significant strides since arriving to his foster home, even learning to use a bell to announce his intentions. Buddy does enjoy company of other dogs, but would be best if he were the sole pet. He really enjoys company and would thrive in an environment that afforded routine companionship, probably best for a retiree or teleworker. Buddy is healthy, neutered and up-to-date on all vaccines. He's currently being fostered in Bel Air, Md. Let this little guy into your home and heart, he'll be your best "Buddy". Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.

Little Man (L.M.) came to MAIGR weighing in close to 30 pounds and fearful of men. He stayed to himself and was only interested in food. However, with lots of love and care from his foster family, he has made amazing progress! L.M. is 10 years old, now weighing in at 22 lbs and is currently being fostered in Raleigh, NC. While he he has been in foster care, he has been neutered, had some teeth removed and was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, explaining his weight gain. Little Man plays and looks forward to his daily walks, he's walking as far as 3 miles now. He also like to run (in his own funny way). With the help of a healthy diet, walks and love from his foster family, as me tyined he is now down to 22 pounds and has gotten over his fear of the man in the house. Little Man walks on a harness as he shows too much interest in bicycles and joggers. He is house broken and a very well mannered good boy who gets along with other dogs but would be just as happy by himself. He enjoys sleeping by the fire, on the couch and on your bed. He does require assistance getting up on the couch or bed but gets down easily. 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.

Romeo is a loving, devoted, 8 year old âbiggyâ iggy, he is tall, long and solid. His foster home is continuing to work on his weight and hopes to trim him down a few more pounds. He is very athletic; he loves to run in the yard and can jump high. Since entering foster care, Romeo has become a confident boy! He enjoys playing with his brothers (dogs), and enjoys running throughout the yard at lightening fast speeds. Initially Romeo had some separation anxiety, but he now has no worries when his foster parents leave the home. He has come so far since entering his foster home. He will now bark, jumps, wags his tail and gives kisses when his people return. He gets very excited to see them. Romeo had some initial difficulties with his foster brothers, but now he is playing and napping with them. Romeo will woof at you when he needs to go out to go potty. He will sleep in his crate (or your bed) with blankets all night long. Romeo is leashed trained. The issues Romeo once had seem to be melting away. He is so smart, he has learned to watch his foster brothers and do what they do. Romeo just needed time to adjust. Romeo has a 16 year old sister, Olivia who is available if you are interested in adopting more than one. Visit us on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/IGrescueVa.
