Facts about Izzy Belle

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

  • ID#: 10620826-2016680
Izzy has beautiful short black shiny hair and doesn't shed enough to even collect with a broom. She hardly ever barks, loves affection, is well behaved indoors, and does well with every dog she is placed with. Izzy's personality is so amazing that her foster mom uses her to socialize incoming dogs. She is very tolerant of dogs with poor social skills and doesn't react when they tug on her ears, climb on her, etc. She also adjusts her play style to the energy level of her playmate.

Izzy is a high energy dog when outside but well behaved indoors. She is housebroken when she has access to a doggy door but still has accidents when required to stay indoors for more than a few hours. Izzy is an expert fence climber so she would be safest in a home with a wooden privacy fence or underground fence system to keep her safe.

Izzy likes to jump up and twist her body around when she's happy and may be too energetic for small children. She would benefit from additional training.

Izzy is well behaved in the car and in public places. She loves going for rides and enjoys people watching in the vets waiting room.

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
