Male 30 lbs.short -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi there! My name is Bon Bon! Boy do I have quite the story to tell you! You see, I am 9 years young and my descendants were of the Italian Greyhound Mixed breed. I look quite a bit like them with my nice slender 30 lb. figure. Well, I used to live with a family somewhere downtown. It was an ok life until one day I was attacked by a big hairy nasty monster! He bit my neck and I had large chunks of skin missing. My old family decided that they couldn't afford to take care of my injuries, so they dumped me off at the Chicago Animal Shelter. Let me tell you, that is a SCARY place! Guys like me, they don't last long in places like that. I guess it just happened to be my lucky day though. The nice people from HELP pulled me out of that horrible place and I took a long ride to the suburbs to meet my new foster family. I never knew how good life could be until I started living here! There are other medium sized dogs for me to play with and I enjoy doing that, although I must admit, I'm not too fond of the big dogs, bad memories from that attack night. There are older kids here and they are the best because they let me snuggle with them under the covers for bed time, that is one of my favorite times of the day! I'm not too crazy about this arctic air we've been having lately, but my foster mom does try to help me out. I have a coat that I wear outside, I stand by the door to let her know I need to go out there, and then as soon as I've done what I need to do, I come racing back in! My foster mom knows how much I hate the cold, so she has made a nice fluffy spot for me in the kitchen next to the heater where I can warm up. Since I'm such a good boy, my mom does not make me stay in a crate all day, and why should she? I am a good boy, I don't chew things I shouldn't and I am completely housebroken! I still have some trouble trusting those I don't know, especially when I am nervous that they might hurt me, so for now I'm looking for a new home that is quiet. I'd love to run around in a fenced in yard. My foster mom takes me on walks on a leash and it's alright, but I really have enough energy left in these little legs of mine that I'd love to RUN! Oh, my neck wounds, well, my foster mom took me to the vet to have them looked at and they really weren't as bad as we all thought. They just needed to be cleaned out and treated with some ointment. They've healed up and I feel like a new man! I'm ready to start looking for a real place to call my home. Somewhere with good people who will treat me nice and care for me into my old age. But that is a ways off! Right now, I'm looking for someone who wants a spunky, handsome dog who loves to play with toys and rip them apart! That's my kind of human! If you think we'd be a good match, please fill out one of those applications so you can come and meet me! I promise you won't be disappointed www.helpinganimals.org (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting an Italian Greyhound in Illinois|
Italian Greyhound Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Italian Greyhound is a gentle, elegant, somewhat nervous and high strung dog. The Italian Greyhound makes a good companion for low-key families without rambunctious children. Italian Greyhounds get along well with other pets, especially other Italian Greyhounds, but do not do well with larger dogs. Italian Greyhounds need gentle but firm obedience training.
