About Us

I founded ME-Chelle’s Italian Greyhounds and Whippets in 2000, out of the true and pure love for these breeds. My name is Michelle R. Verrier-Davis, DMD and my husband’s name is Pete M. Davis, DMD. We reside in Falmouth, Maine (five minutes from intown Portland). I’m a dentist by profession and had been afraid of dogs since one bit me as a child. It was actually my husband who convinced me, and bought my first two dogs (which were litter mates). He had no idea of the can of worms he had opened.  Regrettably my first three dogs were bought from pet stores and the next from a questionable online breeder whose website advertised that they “ship anywhere, Visa and MasterCard accepted”.

After a lot of education from numerous books and talking to many knowledgeable IG and Whippet owners, I have come a long way. Although I realize I still have a lot to learn, I do feel that I have learned a lot the hard way and want to share my experiences with others, thereby saving them the time, energy, and heartache I’ve gone through. So please go though my website and, if you learn even just one thing, my goal was accomplished. As my knowledge and experience on this subject evolves, so will this web site. I sincerely hope others will continue to benefit from my experiences both good and bad.

ME-Chelle’s Resort is becoming involved more and more with other aspects of Italian Greyhounds, focusing on health and rescuing.  Since we do it for love and not money (we have another profession to support us), ALL money ME-Chelle’s receives for placement of puppies or adopting old IGs goes to rescuing IGs.  Our love goes DEEP!!!  We support the rescue whenever needed or asked.  Mary Frankio, IGCA rescue representative for Massachusetts, has showed me the way when it comes to rescuing Italian Greyhounds.  It definitely takes teamwork and with a team leader like Mary, we do a GOOD job up here in the Northeast!!  I’ve learned Italian Greyhounds are a special breed and need special care and lots of love.  This is NOT your average breed.

Our life revolves around Italian greyhounds, every minute of every day.  We invite you to come to ME-Chelle’s Resort and see how Italian Greyhounds (& Whippets) should and deserve to be treated.  Also to see if this breed is right for you (because they are NOT for EVERYONE) and maybe just maybe, you too will find TRUE LOVE in an Italian Greyhound!!!!!!
