Italian Greyhound

An adotable dog in Atco, NJ

  • Adult
  • Small
  • Female

Niblet is a very sweet, eight-year old, 13.5 pound, Italian Greyhound who is in a wonderful Italian Greyhound foster home in New Jersey. Although Niblet does have lymphoma and is on oral chemotherapy, she is otherwise healthy and the veterinarian oncologist is optimistic regarding her condition. The oncologist has indicated, "Niblet has been diagnosed with a low grade lymphoma. This is typically a cancer that responds well to low grade chemotherapy, which Niblet is on. The chemotherapy that Niblet is on should not make her sick." If, in the future, Niblet were to stop responding to the oral chemotherapy, she could be switched to a diffrent protocol.

Niblet is housetrained; she potties outside and on doggy pee pads, and has had no accidents since being in her foster home. She is perfect when on-leash, not pulling at all; is good with other dogs and cats; is fine when left alone with free roam of the house, but has also been fine when crated in the car; and only tends to bark when she hears a car door or if something scares her. Niblet is capable of jumping baby gates, but only does so when not in someone's presence. She can also open doors with handles, as opposed to knobs.

This girl tends to be timid, especially with children, and needs time to warm to an unfamiliar person or to a new environment. Although preferring not to be held, Niblet will cuddle next to you and give kisses.

If you are interested in providing Niblet with her forever home, please contact Italian Greyhound Place.
