Crate training-please note that we teach crating as a 'safe happy personal space' where the IG can rest/sleep when confinement is necessary. Crates should NEVER be used as a punishment or 'time out' space. Does not like being crated
Italian Greyhounds are known for housebreaking issues and most will have occasional accidents. Many come to us as surrenders due to excessive potty accidents indoors. This is typically the result of poor potty routines within the previous home so we do typically get them on track fairly quickly. As an IG parent you must be willing to commit to a structured and reasonable routine to keep your iggy from having excessive indoor accidents. My house-training Status is: Occasional accidents
We are working on it!
I know how to use designated potty pads indoors
Working on outside potty training
A little more about me and my personality:     “I love to bounce! I love to play! I love to snuggle!”  Let me introduce Bellamy, a curious energetic 5-6 year old girl with tons of love to give.  After growing up alone in a crate surrounded by other animals she couldn’t interact with, Bellamy found herself in a loving foster home.  Shy at first, she quickly adapted and has become a real cuddler.  She enjoys the company of another IG and a Sheltie with whom she plays, naps and dines.  Not too sure of the great outdoors, Bellamy is learning about it and walking on a leash.  She is learning to potty outdoors and is pee-pad trained.  At a sleek 9.5 pounds, this girl is destined to be fashion model slender.  Bellamy is an adorable, silly, quirky girl who is full of love and wants a chance to show it.
If I have a known medical issue or am taking any medications, they are listed here: Bellamy needs to be retested June 13 for lyme's disease, now that she has completed treatment. Hopefully it will be negative as she seems like a perfectly good healthy girl.

Kindest Regards,
