10/26/10 We welcome Dora (the Explorer) to IGCA Rescue of MN/ND. She is a beautiful 9.7 pound seal and white pied Italian Greyhound that is 1 year old. She has unique markings and has a very striking look about her.

Dora was found as a stray and went unclaimed for 3 weeks. Why no one would claim her is beyond me. She was turned over to our fantastic volunteer and Vet Tech, Deborah Hemstad at Pinkerton Vet Clinic in Minot, ND as the person that found her could not keep her.

Dora is a tiny bit shy when she first meets you, but within 10 minutes is your best friend. She just got spayed today and had some baby teeth pulled. She also got her other teeth all shined up so starting with dental care for her will be easy! She will be going to her foster home on 10/30/10 where I will get to learn more about her. She absolutely loves another IG she gets to see and does great with the office cats. She is just all around sweet.

I love that one too. Looks like an angel and like a tease at the same time. Don't suppose Taffy needs a sister? spikey_rolleyes.gif

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

She looks like she wants nothing more than to be a good girl & smothered with love in her very own home. The best of luck to her in finding it!
