I will be moving to the Greenwich area in CT in September. Since I will likely be travelling a lot, I don't feel I am a good fit any more for keeping my dog Izzy. I am looking for a new home for Izzy, ideally closer to the Greenwich/CT/NYC area, so that I might still be able to visit her, but I am open to other options.
Izzy is a 6-year-old, spayed, 70lb Shepherd mix (her mom was rescued back from Afghanistan). We got her from a shelter 2 years ago. She absolutely loves both familiar and new people; she loves tummy-rubbing. She is very low energy at home and could sleep through the day when someone is around, but when outside she is also excited to explore. She can do basic tricks like sit, stay, jump, fetch, down, come, beg, roll-over, and play dead, and she does well with crates.
Since she has some separation anxiety and can howl quite loudly when left alone for an extended period, she would ideally live with a big or retired family who can be around most of the time and who doesn’t have other pets. (Hiking with her, for example, where other dogs are unleashed isn’t a good idea until she’s had some careful training.)
Izzy is spayed and up to date with all shots, but she has unfortunately been diagnosed with Addison disease; she has to be on lifelong medication, which could cost upwards of $100/month. She is a wonderful companion and would certainly earn her keep!
