Oh...what to say about Ivy? Ivy is a four year old, 45 pound gal that thinks she is a lapdog. She is very low to the ground and looks like her second cousin may be a little piggie. She is a cuddle bug and loves to be where the people are. This social butterfly is good with other dogs and brings the party with her everywhere she goes. She LOVES to play as you can see from the video and she has a great energy that makes her so much fun. She is confident and has good social skills. Ivy is reliable with doing her potty business outside and she is crate trained. She walks well on a leash with a harness and loves a car ride. She takes correction well and is praise oriented. She has clearly had many litters in her lifetime and we are very happy that her days of being used for breeding are done and she can now just be another member of a family. Ivy was stuck in a municipal shelter and got incredibly lucky that someone from the vet tech program at a local university met her and saw what a good girl she is. She was pulled by that faculty member and spent a couple weeks hanging out with the students until she was able to go to foster care. She lives in a foster home with lots of other dogs. She also lives in foster care with cats and the cats all hate her with a passion because she thinks chasing them is super fun so she would be best in a cat free household. Ivy is all set to be your new bff.
