The link I provided is for a breed specific rescue is located in the UK, not the US.
The Italian Greyhound Rescue Charity - Welcome the Italian Greyhound Rescue Charity

Not trying to push you one way or the other (if you want to purchase then dig around on the other links from my prior post), just wanted to make sure you know incase adopting is something you would consider.

I do not think the site had any shoes on it..LOL Click on the show...This site does not advertise puppies for sale. It is a site that show the results from the dog shows..Dogs name and owner listed. You would have look up the owners.

Suewar,
I would suggest looking at the links KMES,pkelley, and LynneMarie for the kennel clubs, rescues, and dog shows, calling on the telephone some of those breeders, owners/showers, and rescues, and talk them in person to see if they or any other breeders they know have litters (or rescues) available or due. You really may be surprised how well and much breeders and showers network. Someone will surely have a lead for you! (Also, some breeders don't always keep their websites up to date, so if you find a breeder's site you like, call them up!)

While the internet is an okay place to start, the breeders, owners/showers, and rescues usually have great connections. You won't get that from surfing the web. Also, merely purchasing a puppy from an online ad, without actually talking to the breeder, may put you in the position of buying a poorly bred pup from a unknowledge, irresponsible, unethical etc breeder.

It sounds like you've exhausted the Internet sources, time to call up some people and ask around! Good luck!

PS. Like Juliemule suggested, importing is an option. It is not impossible to buy from another country or even overseas. You can have the dog shipped or fly over and bring him back; I know some people actually fly over the breeder with the dog for delivery. Whatever suits....

Please, please, please do not buy an Italian Greyhound (or any other dog) from an ad on the internet. You will only be rewarding puppy mill breeders and back-yard breeders if you buy one off the internet. And you're likely to end up with a genetically unsound Italian Greyhound, if you do buy one this way. This breed has suffered tremendously from byb's and puppy mills. Either research reputable breeders and wait 'til the right one comes along, or contact a Rescue group in the UK. The rescue groups can advise re personality, etc. They will also be a tremendous resource to you after you have your dog. And please keep in mind that the individual personality of the dog is so much more important than the color of the dog. Different Iggies have different personalities; they are not all alike. There are very reputable IG breeders in Europe. You do not have to import one from the U.S. (very stressful for the dog).
