IGCA Rescue - Arizona Placements
and Precious are two one year old littermates turned
into rescue in El Paso, TX, in January 2003. They were
turned in by their owner due to changes in their life and they
could not longer keep them. That is Precious, a female, on
the left and Strider, a male, on the right. Here they are settling in
with their new owner's son, Kris, in their new home in Los
is an 8-9 year old blue fawn female, placed in Payson in January
2003. Miette was found as a stray in Las Vegas and turned
into rescue when her owner couldn't be found. Miette, now
named Mini, happily lives on a big ranch with several doggie
playmates, including Bug, her IG playmate.
passed away at age 14 on Dec 10, 2008 in her forever home found
through rescue. She was well loved and will be missed,
always. Her bright spirit lives on in the hearts of those
who knew her well.
a 1 year old blue male, placed in Cave Creek in
January. Dante was turned into IGCA rescue in Missouri,
where he had already had several owners that couldn't care for
him. We found a good home for him here in Arizona.
His owners flew over to meet him and bring him home to live with
their other IG, Coco.
a 6-7 year old blue male, placed in Phoenix in
February. Buddy was turned into rescue when his owners got
transferred by the military. They had found him as a
stray. Buddy is enjoying his final home with rescue
a 5 year old red fawn male, placed in Phoenix in
March. Jacque was turned into rescue when one of his owners
died and the other couldn't care for him and another IG, Jazzer,
and left them outside. Jacque is a timid dog, probably due
to his lack of socialization early in his life. He loves
the companionship of other dogs and is starting to play. He
happily lives in his new home with an IG/Chihuahua mix and a
a 5 month old blue pied female, placed in
Scottsdale in June. Grace was turned into rescue in Las
Vegas because her owner could not housebreak her. We found
a great home for Grace here in Arizona with the family that
adopted Penny in July 2002.
a ~1 year old blue male, placed in Peoria in
July. He was found as a stray and his owner never claimed
him. He came into rescue a very sick dog with a full blown
case of Hookworm and an additional deep rooted infections.
After several months of excellent care in his foster home, he
improved and became the terrific dog he is now. Mocha, now
renamed Milo, enjoys his new home with his new companion, and
identical twin, Calvin! Can you tell which one is
which? Mocha/Milo is on the left.
Bella, a 4 month old blue
female, placed in Higley in September. Bella is a good
example of why you should research into IGs and reputable
breeders before purchasing. Bella's owners had her for only
3 days before turning her into rescue, realizing that IGs were
more demanding then they expected, and the person they purchased
her from had disconnected his phone. Bella came into rescue
with Kennel Cough and a herniated umbilical chord. Bella
was quarantined until her Kennel Cough cleared up, spayed, her
hernia fixed, and went into the arms of her new home with a big
Mousey, a 7 year old blue
male, placed in Las Vegas in October. Mousey was turned
into the SPCA in Las Vegas in June by owners saying they had too
many dogs, and he was transported here for foster care.
Mousey weighed 30 pounds when he came into rescue. He
previous owner's told the SPCA that they fed him table
scrapes. That most certainly has a lot to do with Mousey's
health problems include low thyroid. He also has a
condition called salivary mucoceles, which is a pouch of saliva
on his neck. Mousey dropped down to 24 pounds when he was
placed and was doing fine on thyroid medication. Here is
Mousey with his new family.
Giselle, a 1 year old red
female, placed in Albuquerque in October. Giselle was
turned in when her family had a baby, were frustrated with
housebreaking, and felt they could no longer care for her.
Lucky Giselle had a party of friends waiting for her arrival from
Phoenix to Albuquerque.
Rusty, 1.5 year old red
male, placed in Phoenix on October 24th.
Rusty was turned into a vet by his owner's saying they were
getting a divorce. The vet called us to bring him into
rescue. Rusty now lives happily with another very playful
IG pal, Kysen.
Leo, 1 year old red male, placed in San Diego in November. He was turned
into the Arizona Humane Society by people saying that their son
was allergic to Leo. AHS contacted us knowing he needed a
special home. Leo lives with his playmate, Tuscany.
Maya, 8 year old fawn
female, placed in Payson in November. Maya
had multiple owners in her life (at least 4) and was once a
backyard breeder's brood bitch. Her last owner turned her
in because of housebreaking problems. Maya was spayed and
had several small tumors from her belly removed and 38 teeth
pulled! She has 4 left. Many of her teeth were so rotted that the
only thing holding them in her mouth was the heavy tarter build
up. She finally is in a loving home where she will no longer be
neglected. Maya lives with Mini, adopted back in January.
