Sweet, beautiful 9 yo Little Miss Nelli comes to us from the south and is continuing her social rehabilitation in one of our wonderful foster homes in Lincoln, NE. She is new to us so we are still learning about her. What we do know is she came from a puppy mill living out her entire life in a cage. No way for a dog to live. She is now exploring and learning how to be a dog and how to trust and also how to be someone's pampered pet. She will need a home with someone who is saavy with puppy mill dogs or real timid dogs. We do want her to have a fenced yard as she LOVES to zoom around and run, run, run and "hunt". She deserves that after so many years in a cage. She does great with her foster IG siblings and loves to snuggle up with them and learns the "ropes" from them. She has been great with the two other large dogs in the home as well. However, they are calm and not the playful type. She is nervous around large, playful and active dogs. She seems to really enjoy kids as long as they are kind and respectful. She has been learning leash skills and has been enjoying neighborhood walks as of lately. She is going outside to potty beautifully when let outside and is also potty pad trained for inclement weather. She does crate nicely and quiety overnight without a peep and while foster mom is away. She does not prefer to sleep with her human, at least at this time. At this time, she is more dog attached than human attached but we are hoping with more time and love, this will change. She is not a jump in your lap and snuggle kind of dog right now but will allow petting when she is snuggled up to her IG foster siblings. They bring her comfort and we do want her in a home with another small dog or two. If you think you can provide Nelli a patient, safe and nurturing home while understanding that right now she is not the typical "follow you all around the house and jump in your lap and snuggle you under the covers" IG, please get in touch with us. These mill dogs do make wonderful strides once they leave the mill behind but it can take quite a long time and it is very rewarding to watch. Please visit us at midwestigrescue.com to learn more about the adoption process and to fill out an application. We do require an adoption donation fee to help us cover the cost of vetting while they are in our care. This fee varies depending on their age. Our applicaton process consists of a completed application, vet and two personal reference checks and home visit. We do require that your resident pets be spayed or neutered and have routine veterinary care and check-ups. Our dogs are available for adoption in Nebraska and Iowa and will be considered for adoption to surrounding states (within a reasonable day drive). We DO NOT transport or ship dogs. You would be responsible for picking up from foster home. If you are in a state other than NE or IA, you will need to work with your state's IGCA representative in order to get your application processed and approved before being considered. Please use the website igrescue.com to find your state's affilate and rescue representative. Thank you for your understanding!

WELCOME TO RESCUE FAGIOLI! ******FOSTERING IN SOUX FALLS, SD***** Fagioli, is a 9 year old, larger sized IG. His foster mom says he is the "clydesdale" of the IG breed as he has a beautiful shape and stance on a sturdy frame. Fagioli comes from a home with a loving owner that he loved for 8 years and he was almost never alone so it’s understandable that he likes to follow his foster mom if she leaves the room. He is very friendly, but he will want to get to know you at his own pace. He is a little skittish of sudden movements so we feel a quiet home is best for him. His foster home has two, older, mellow Italian greyhounds and he gets along fine with them, he even tolerates the grumpy one! 😉 He is nervous around a lot of dogs/activity so dog parks and doggie day care are not his cup of tea. He'd rather stay at home wiht his family and snuggle and take walks in the neighborhood. Fagioli hears every little noise and is very curious if there is something or someplace new to explore. He loves to explore the back yard and he loves to go for walks with his foster brothers. Fagioli will let you know when he needs to go outside by going to the door. He will also let you know that it is time to eat. He was use to 9 and 5 feedings and his internal clock doesn’t miss a beat. 😉 He seems to really appreciate routine as he will tell his foster mom when it’s time to eat and also when it’s time to go on a walk. The walk times he learned from the first day in foster care and his memory is impressive! Fagioli was a little nervous at the vet office and was anxious to leave (there were several barking dogs that day), but he let them examine him and trim his nails with no complaints. He is 85% kennel trained now. Fagioli was use to sleeping with his owner, so sleeping in a kennel alongside his foster brothers was a little strange for him. He would love to sleep with his people in his new home! He now goes unaided into his kennel to sleep at night as long as he can see his foster mom, so there has been good progress. He is also learning to “sit” and “stay.” He’s a very smart dog and knew what he was suppose to do within the first few tries. We don’t know if he knew the commands before, but Fagioli likes to pick and chose which times it’s worth the treat to sit and which times he can do without. 😉 Fagioli is fostering in Sioux Falls, SD. He is up to date on Vaccinations, Heartworm neg and on preventatives, neutered, microchipped and will be having a dental done on Aug 6th. THE IDEAL HOME FOR FAGIOLI WOULD BE: a QUIET home without boisterous other dogs (mellow dogs would be OK), without small/young children, a fenced yard with at least a 5' fence to keep this athletic boy safely contained and someone would be home more than away as this is what he has been used to.

This is a courtesy post for one of our nearby IGCA State affililiates: Hello, meet Geno! He is a 12-year-old male who has a relaxed "live and let live" attitude. He prefers time with his human, but does well with calm dogs, nice cats, and older children. Geno is crate trained for shorter periods of time, house trained, and obedient. He does sleep with his human in bed at night as he doesn't like the crate at night and wants to be close to his person. He is like most other iggies, a velcro dog. He is used to spending about 4 hrs in the crate without issue when foster mom is away during the day. He is not interested in playing with foster iggy brothers or cats. He much perfers to be with his people snuggling. He would do fine as an only dog. He is pretty good with the cold weather and doesn't much want to burrow under blankets but he is tolerant to wearing fashionable clothes. He does great traveling in the car in his crate and does well on leash. He is toothless so no dentals needed in the future. He is developing cataracts but his vision seems just fine. He is working to lose his love handles as iggies are much healthier when at the proper, slim weight. His ideal weight is likely 17 lbs. He has a large fatty tumor on his neck, another one on his chest, and other minor lumps. Fatty tumors are quite normal on older pups, especially IG's. Geno is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and heartworm negative. Health info: Geno does have some activity/jumping restrictions so he doesn't aggravate his back. He likes to take life easy anyway! He also just had a tumor removed near his rear leg. The pathology came back as a type of sarcoma which is cancer. The margins thankfully were clear when they removed it. He will need to be watched for any re-growth.. He is no doubt a great boy that may have years left to be cherished and loved in a family, or this sarcoma could spread and cause metastasis. We just don't know. But what we do know is Geno would love to find his forever home with someone who will be able to care for his needs as they arise. Geno is available for adoption through IGCA Rescue. He is being fostered in Spearfish, South Dakota. Inquiries will be forwarded onto the rep for this area.
