My lovely wife got her new dog, an Italian Greyhound/American Rat Terrier mix. He's neutered, weighs 10 pounds, is just over 1 year old, and is not a working dog, but a "let's go to the store" dog for her in retirement. A love sponge, in other words.
This little fellow moves like a ballerina, as sight hounds do, and he's very mellow and quiet. Perfect!
I will write in another post about my wife's experiences, and my observations, about the world of rescue. Suffice it to say, it all worked out. Now, we have to come up with a name... and a full breed history.
