I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Hello, my name is Ivy. I was born January 15th, 2015; I am 9 months old. My original family was told I am a Border Collie, Blue Heeler, Australian Shepherd Mix. As you can imagine I am a high energy dog and need an environment that allows me lots of room to run and explore. Due to the Border Collie in me, I tend to want to play catch all the time… but can also easily entertain myself for hours with a bone. I love people, but am very protective of my owners. If I am off leash, I feel more confident when I meet people and usually just want a belly rub. However, when I am on leash, I am a little more guarded and it may take me a little longer to become comfortable with new people. My current parents take me to play with other dogs all the time, and for the most part, I get along with all of them. I am not familiar with cats, and the few children I have been around, I have seemed to get along with.
While at home alone, I am in my crate, but my parents make sure that it is never longer than 4 hours (unless its bedtime, then I usually out sleep my parents). They realize that I need time to stretch and socialize. Unfortunately, I tend to guard my food and my parents are now making me eat out of their hands with the hopes that I will become less protective. The only other time that I might get a little growly is when I am tired. Near the end of the night, I often put myself to bed. If I am forced to stay up, I may simply get grouchy.
Over all I am a happy, attentive puppy. I was in basic puppy training from 3-6 months and know all the basic commands; Sit, Stay, Roll over, Wait, Leave it, In your crate, No, Find your Frisbee/bone/ball. I am very smart and ready to learn more.
Please understand I am being adopted out through a rescue and as such there is an adoption application that must be completed and return to Just N Time Rescue before any meet and greets will be set up. I am spayed, up to date with my vaccines, micro-chipped, crate trained and house trained. My adoption fee $350.00. For more information my me, or to obtain an adoption application please email firstname.lastname@example.org ; please allow 48 hours for a response before re-emailing. The rescue is run 100% by very busy volunteers; they will get back to you as quickly as they can. Thank you in advance for thinking of rescuing! Sincerely, Ivy
