We recently decided to adopt Italian Greyhounds after owning 2 full sized rescue Greyhounds. TIGR was awesome! Robin along with several others associated with TIGR as foster families took the time to answer every one of our questions. TIGR is a great resource and provided everything we needed to adopt. After getting our 2 sweet senior Iggies, the support and help continued. Thank you TIGR for providing us with 2 sweet new blessings for our home.
