Ivory's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ivory's Story...
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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivory, a Saskatoon American Eskimo Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog for sale in Saskatoon, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog dog from a breeder in Saskatoon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Saskatoon 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 Saskatoon 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 American Eskimo Dog breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Saskatoon paves the way for another one to be saved.
