Dog of the Week: Auggie

Name: Auggie

How’d I get that name? My real name is Augustina Olympia. My Daddy gave me that name because he and Mommy adopted me in an August when the Olympics were in China.

Age: I was born in the summer of 2008 and was just a couple of months old when I was adopted. Someone left me in a dog crate outside a shelter with my papers, except they didn’t put their name on them.

Breed: Italian Greyhound, a/k/a Iggy. Originally we were bred to be ladies’ foot warmers. Typical weight is about 8-12 lbs., and we can run 25 mph! We are not outdoor dogs! We need protection from heat and cold.

Favorite Treat: Bacon strips!

Favorite Adventure: Play dates with other Iggys!10405268_622679377842411_9218232111548667365_n
