Hi there! My name is Leo and I just turned 1 year old. I want to be your new best friend, but understandably, I am cautious. I am still learning what it means to be loved and cared for so it is taking me a bit of time to realize some people are really nice. I learned what grass is and snow and I don’t mind rain but I would rather be inside curled up with my doggy friends and foster mommy. I do potty outside and also getting pretty good at potty pads. I am not a marker or leg lifter but sometimes my puppy brain forgets so I’m gonna need a little help to remember where it is okay to potty. I can make it through the night without an accident but I really gotta go first thing in the morning. I love trying all these new foods my foster mommy is feeding me! I have not found a food I do not like yet. I keep being told that I am a big, beautiful and strong boy (16.5lbs) I also LOVE toys !! I am learning if I toss them up in the air it’s like I am playing a game with myself! I love to entertain by being silly and playing with my foster brothers (2 IGs like me!!). I have been told I am spoiled right now with a human home with me all day so I would really enjoy if I can have close to that with my furever family if possible. When I am left alone I do great in a kennel for short amounts of time. Foster mommy says I like to shred paper products too much right now to be trusted free (she is no fun). Puppies like me can get into trouble if we are not safely contained. I would enjoy other small siblings to play with and I am a sweet boy once I warm up to you. I would love a patient, calm home. A lower traffic home would be awesome for a little guy like me too as I am very nervous around new people still. You see, I missed out on socialization and new experiences when I was a young pup so I am experiencing lots of new things now and they can frighten me. But I am learning! I am still learning about leash training so I will need a securely fenced yard for my potty habits and to keep me safe. If you have experience with Italian Greyhounds that would be best for me. And I want to add, I would LOVE a home with another small pup to play with and continue to teach me the ropes. I am neutered, up to date on all my shots, HW negative and on a HW preventative, Will you let me cuddle with you? *****LOCAL AREA ADOPTIONS CONSIDERED FIRST******* ****PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT TRANSPORT OR SHIP OUR DOGS***** Please visit us at midwestigrescue.com to learn more about the adoption process and to fill out an application.

Bari is a beautiful 7 y/o boy. He has been in foster care for just at 3 years learning how to be a dog and trust humans. He was in foster care in Texas and them came up here to find his forever home. Sadly, he was in a group of 60 IGs from a puppy mill. He is looking for a patient and loving home who will accept him where he is and can help him potentially thrive even more! Bari is still shy of humans but loves other dogs, small or gentle, large dogs and gets along with cats too. He used to prefer his bed and/or safety of his kennel in a nice quiet area for naps but now, he enjoys a dog bed in the living room to hang with the pack or on the human bed with his foster siblings. He loves getting massages with his AnimalEO essential oils. He is not a jump in your lap and snuggle sort of iggy, nor does he want to sleep with his people at night, but he does enjoy massages, and loves sitting next to you on the couch and getting petted. He does walk well on the leash too but doesn't seem to particularly love taking walks. Bari does not like to be picked up as this causes him a lot of stress. In his previous foster home, he was house trained to use bells and supervised dog doors. He can use pee pads too. In his current foster home, he does very well with his potty training going out frequently during the day as his mom is not gone for a full work day. When foster mom leaves the home for a few hours, Bari is crated and does very well. He also has been gated in a secure area with his open crate and bed and with pee pads. At night, he is gated in the bedroom with his open crate and bed and pee pads and does use them overnight accurately. Bari is on a very inexpensive anti-anxiety medication that has been decreased overtime. He does have food allergies/sensitivities but is easily managed by avoiding certain proteins/grains/legumes and is readily available. He can be fussy with eating so having a variety for him is key and he often does not want to eat first thing in the morning. He is usually eating three small meals a day. It is important to offer him food when he seems hungry (he will let you know) to keep his weight up as he is on the thin side. We would like someone who is home partime during the day to accomodate his eating habits. He does have a history of seizures but he has not had any since very early spring (march 2019). He is not on seizure medication. His forever home should be adult only and/or only the maturest of older teenagers. He should have a small dog or two or three, as he loves other dogs. For his safety, he will need a secure, fenced yard for potty time and play. He will need continued social rehabilitation in his new home and his people will need to be patient and gentle and have a quiet home. Someone who has experience with very timid/skittish dogs and/or puppy mill dogs would be fantastic as well as someone who is home at least part-time druring the day to help him continue to progress. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or you may be interested to learn if he may be a good fit!

  • Prefers home without small kids
Buddy is a strong, sturdy boy at 16 pounds. We think he is around 12 years of age. He came to us an unclaimed stray from a shelter. He was extrememly thin and anemic but he is now healthy. He can be clumsy at times, especially on non-carpet surfaces. Though he won't be winning any agility contests, he has a lot of energy for an older boy, enjoys 2 mile walks and has never had an accident inside, Pretty amazing for an IG! This affectionate boy gets along with other dogs and cats but is mostly independent. He loves to sit on his foster mom lap and snuggle. He would do fine as an only dog. He really likes to play with toys and is a funny little guy. He'll find the right smell in the grass and spend a good 10 minutes rolling around, get up and repeat. He is very treat motivated and is a smart boy learnings lots of new tricks. No need to spend lots of money on dog beds, this guy wants to be on your lap. He will do best in a home where someone is with him during the day at least part time as he doesn't love the crate but he will crate up on command. He does have decreased hearing so he can startle easily Because of this, he can not share a bed with his humans overnight—he will need a home committed to crating him overnight or having him gated in a safe, secure area with his bed. He will need his home to be patient, loving and understanding and willing to continue to work with him on hand commands he has learned due to his decreased hearing (foster parents have worked with a certified behavior consultant) and provide stimuating activities for him (puzzle feeders, short training sessions, etc). He does needs a home without children. His Foster mom thinks he is quite a catch, but knows an opportunity where he wouldn't be crated a lot during the day is best for his future since he is crated overnight. Buddy was recently diagnosed with low thyroid and is now on a very inexpensive medication 2x daily (under $5 month). He is also taking an anti-anxiety medication daily. This is a very inexpensive medication also. He has had a dental cleaning with a few extractions, blood panels done, vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tested since coming into rescue and is on a heartworm preventative. He is also microchipped.
