|Animal ID: 2772BonBon (male)|
BonBon is a 30 pound Italian greyhound/terrier mix who is approximately 6-8 years old. BonBon ended up at Chicago Animal Care and Control after he was attacked by another dog and his family could not afford his treatment. HELP rescued him from CACC and got him the treatment he needed for his injuries (which thankfully were not serious) and he has healed completely. The vet guessed BonBon's age at 6-8 years although he acts much younger. He is housetrained, does not chew, and sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in our bedroom. He gets along well with our medium size dogs. He enjoys running around the yard, playing with dog toys and curling up on a fuzzy blanket for naps. He loves going for walks and is also going out for runs with me and my two dogs. He does very well and certainly has the energy and stamina for it, running as far as 10 miles. BonBon has very short hair and is not a fan of cold weather. So in addition to fuzzy blankets, BonBon likes to wear sweaters when it is cold and has a couple of coats for outdoors. BonBon was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, which improved when he started taking steroids. He currently takes a half pill every other day (the cost for 100 pills is $26 at Walgreens) and also takes pro biotics once a day. He is also currently eating a prescription dog food that we obtain from the vet. He should be able to be weaned off of that food once he has settled in to his permanent home. Before starting the steroids, BonBon spent most of his days curled up sleeping, often not even wanting to get out of bed. Now BonBon is active and playful, always happy to receive attention, wagging his tail and talking to us. It's obvious that he is a happy dog now that he is feeling so much better. While we hope that BonBon's IBD will remain in control with the steroids and pro biotics, he may always have bouts of diarrhea. As a result, he would be best with someone who is home most of the day or can let him out every 4 hours during the day. BonBon's history left him wary and a little fearful of other dogs. He is nervous when meeting new dogs but once he realizes the dogs are not aggressive, he gets along fine with them. He is a very well behaved dog and is eager to please. BonBon is neutered, micro chipped, and up to date on all of his vaccinations. He is ready to find his own family to love. He has quite a few good years left in him and he is hoping to find someone willing to give an older guy a chance. He is definitely worth it! So if you have room in your heart and a warm spot in your house for BonBon, please come meet him. (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.
