Facts about Ivy

  • Breed: Shar Pei Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Ivy is a beautiful girl! She was born in April/May 2016 and is a nice size at 30-35 lbs. She was rescued from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Out there she hadn't been treated very nicely by people, and was pretty terrified of everything when we first got her. She has settled in well and is learning to trust, but she needs a kind family who is willing to spend some time helping her realize that people won't hurt her. We've rescued lots of dogs like Ivy, and they always turn out to be wonderful family dogs when given love and patience. While Ivy is wary of people, she absolutely loves other dogs! She MUST have another nice, friendly dog in the house as a positive role model. She also needs a yard, as she is not the type of dog to do well in an apartment. Ivy is a really good puppy and she is going to be a great dog! She is very smart. She was housebroken and crate-trained very quickly! Adoption fee for Ivy is $150, and she is already spayed, micro-chipped, and has received her rabies and DAPP puppy vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Ivy, please email or text your email address to 602-295-4518 and let us know that you are interested in filling out an application on Ivy.

AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue would like to remind everyone that puppies are a big commitment and require a lot of attention. Puppies often exhibit undesirable behaviors such as chewing and digging. Of course they also are a lot of fun and are very lovable too. When choosing a puppy please consider how much time you will be able to spend training and socializing your new puppy.

About AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!

Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!

In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program.
