Arrival Story:
I rescued Tweed from the GA Italian Greyhound Assoc.I was not sure if I would get one for sure.The lady finally called one day and said she had a little guy from Wyoming that came from a breeder.He had not a great life as he had been kept in a little cage most of his life. I was told that he was not really potty trained and that I would have to start from ground zero with him.I told her I could not have a dog that was not house broken. Well, she asked I come meet Tweed and her other IG's.When she came to the door, he was in her arms and that was it. He looked at me with those sad eyes and just perked his ears up.I held him and knew he was coming home and that we would work through he issues.He had lots of issues as he was so thin and afraid of people.I spent the whole weekend with him as he had been bounced around so much I could not leave him. 4 years later he knows he is home and he has 2 buddies (Spot and Speedy)and a feline sister. He is the light of my life.My little angel.

Tweed's name when he came to me was Tumbleweed.He came from WY.He came from a breeder, he sired 12 litters!!! He was kept outside in the cold and never had been in a house. He was not potty trained when he came to me. We still have issues, but, he is much better!
