I'm Ivory! I'm a sweet and shy girl looking for my forever home. I am about 2 years old and weigh about 25 lbs. I started off my life as a stray up north and it's taken me awhile to get used to being in a city, meeting people and living in a house.

I'm still shy of people but I'm getting better. I love food and treats. I will take treats from people and I like to lick their fingers, but if anyone reaches out too fast it scares me and I run away. It took me a long time to trust my foster mom enough to let her touch me. Now I'll lie on the couch and I let her pet me (if she does it slowly so I don't get scared) though it still makes me nervous sometimes. I'll probably never be a "lap dog" or a cuddler but when I'm feeling happy I constantly wag my tail- swoosh, swoosh, my tail never stops! And I do get really excited when my foster mom comes home or when it's supper time, so much that I like to dance around!

I have some favorite toys - my blue ball that I love to carry around and a few stuffies that I like to chew on. My foster mom says that I'm so attached to these toys that she's sending them with me to my new home.

I like to hang out with the other dogs here and I especially like the younger dog who likes to wrestle, run in the yard and play with me. We have fun! I will need to be in a home where I have a doggie brother or sister as it really helps me to feel more comfortable. I haven't met any cats yet but I really like to chase birds so my foster mom I thinks I may chase cats too.

I know how to sit and I have been learning to walk on leash and am doing pretty good especially if we walk somewhere quiet and away from traffic. I am housetrained and have been in a crate but I prefer an x-pen as it is more open and less confining.

I'm looking for a special home that will be very patient with me and let me settle in on my own time even if it takes me a long time to get comfortable. I would prefer a quiet home with 1 or 2 people and no kids as I get nervous with lots of activity. And of course I really want another dog to hang out with and play with!

About New Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a registered charitable organization of (867121808RR0001) volunteers based in Saskatoon, SK. dedicated to rescuing unwanted, stray, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs. All of our rescued dogs are placed in foster care homes when we have a foster home available until a permanent home can be found. Here the dogs receive much needed attention, love, training, and exercise on a daily basis. Being in a home environment can eliminate stress, neurotic behaviors, and illness that may happen with living in a cage or kennel. Being in a home environment allows for an on-going assessment of the dog and what the dog is like to live with. Knowing the dogs personality and quirks helps to determine the best possible permanent home for each dog.It is our main goal to place each dog in a nurturing and loving environment in a permanent home suited to each dog.

All dogs that come into New Hope Dog Rescue are spayed or neutered and receive vaccinations and microchipping prior to being adopted.

We ALWAYS need foster homes who are willing to open their home to a dog in need. This can range from a puppy who needs a good start to a home with someone patient willing to work with the dog. We accept donations of cash (pays for medical expenses or doggie school to brush up on manners before adoption), crate, toys, food, leashes/collars and blankets or bedding. The number of dogs we save is completely limited by the number of people available to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

To meet a dog you need to fill in an adoption application for the dog you wish to meet. You may list more than one dog on your application. We will ask the foster home to contact you and set up a time for you to meet the dog.

Our Adoption Process...

At New Hope Dog Rescue our dogs are our main concern. Rescued, homeless, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs have been through enough upheaval once, we don't want them to experience it again. To ensure this we go through what may seem a lengthy process. We want potential adopters to be fully aware of the responsibilities involved in loving and giving a home to one of our dogs. We also ensure that the dog is a match to the adopters lifestyle and expectations. If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs you can expect to be involved in the following process:

1. Fill in the application. Applications are received and evaluated on a first come basis
2. Our adoption co-ordinator will get the foster home to tell you all about the dog and set up a time for you to meet. All family members must be present. For distance adoptions, a homevisit can be arranged prior to people meeting the dog.
3. If everyone decides that dog and people are a good match, a home visit is done prior to adoption.
4. If the family decides that the dog should become a permanent member of the household, then the adoption fee is applied.
5. New Hope is always available to help with any issues that arise once the dog has been adopted.

The adoption fee covers the basic costs the rescue has incurred (eg. spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping costs). Adults and puppies are $270, Seniors are $160. We require a $150 neuter/spay deposit for unfixed puppies that is refunded when the spay or neuter is done.
