Ivy's Story...
ADOPTED: Congrats to Sarah and Jim and Ivy

Ivy is new to our rescue (Friday 9/11/15) and we are getting to know her. She has a good disposition , but still unsure of new surroundings, but doesn't seem to be startled or frighten by new things while out on a walk, Like many scent oriented dog she loves to smell around and check out things she finds. She doesn't appear to be prey driven, saw squirrel & is fostered in a home with birds. She was cat tested before coming to us and passed. She has been around kids (6 and 11) and not any issues with kids. She is 1 year old and about 40-45 lbs and about 19 inches at the shoulder. She looks much bigger in her photos, we thought the same thing prior to meeting her. She is fostered in a home with 2 dogs, an older male and a female who can be pushy but so far they are doing fine when together, We have seen that she doesn't like to share her humans with other dog so she might be happiest living in a home as an only dog. Ivy is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative & microchipped. She needs some leash work but doing quite well for such a young dog. It is too soon to say for sure but we think she is housetrained. She is a real nice dog who likes being with her humans and travels well in the car. We will post more as we get to know her Her adoption fee is $250.00
To get an application or more information please contact her foster mom Debbie, at

We are a small rescue and a home visit is required before adoption so all potential adopters must live within a 50 mile radius of Aurora IL, no exceptions

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, a Lombard Vizsla/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Vizsla/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Lombard, or seeking a Vizsla/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Lombard.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lombard already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lombard breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Vizsla/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Vizsla/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lombard paves the way for another one to be saved.
