Adopting a friend
Our first suggestion is, if you're not already familiar with IG's, go to IG Club of America..., , and read up on the breed and it's particular traits. IG's are absolutely wonderful! But, they aren't the breed for everyone, so it's best to do the homework and make sure it's the right breed for you. There are also a couple of really great books about IG's that we'd highly recommend - whether you're an experienced IG person, or just learning about the breed, we think you'll find them very informative - They are the Nuts & Bolts IG Book by Patricia Kelly, and The New Complete Italian Greyhound " by Lilian Barber (Amazon carries it ~ see link below in our links section).
Also, the following are helpful links regarding IG's. IG Breed FAQS, and Litter Training the IG. It's important to fully understand the ins and outs of the IG breed before adopting. We want to do all we can to insure that each IG adopted through rescue is adopted into a well prepared forever home, and doesn't ever have to face going back in to a rescue situation. Making sure our potential adopters are well educated on the breed specifics is a first step to achieving that goal.
After doing the homework, if you're still sure that the Italian Greyhound is the breed for you, then our adoption procedure is this... (Adoption Donations are $250) The first step is to fill out the adoption application (email to request one) and return it to TIGR. We'll look over it, call your references, and contact you to discuss any questions we may both have. If things look good, then we begin looking for a dog that best fits your home and life. We also arrange a home visit with you, just so we can meet and answer any questions that you may have, and also verify your application information. If both steps are approved, and we've found an IG that's a match for you, then we complete the adoption agreement and you'll be able to arrange pick up of your new IG family member. TIGR will remain in contact with you through out the initial adjustment period, and beyond, helping to answer any and all questions that come up. We prefer to stay in touch always, as we love getting updates, photos, and stories about the pets we have placed. They remain in our hearts long after they've moved into yours!!
