Ivy came to us with her 9 adorable puppies after spending her first year of life with a family that ultimately decided they were not able to give her what she needed. She has raised her babies and is now ready to find her forever family. It took her a few days to come out of her shell and feel comfortable in a new environment, but now that she has, she is the happiest, most playful girl. Her ears are always up and her tail is always wagging. She enjoys playing with the other dogs in her foster home, and has done well with all the different personalities- from older and grumpy, to loud and bossy, to younger and goofy. Her favorite toys are chew toys, but she can occasionally be caught tossing a stuffed toy around for herself and has just learned the game of tug-of-war. She knows basic commands and while she loves being rewarded with treats, she's happy just making her person happy. Once bonded, Ivy is a bit of a velcro dog. She follows her foster mom around everywhere she goes, often stepping on the back of her flip flops. We don't think Ivy was crated much in her previous home, so she is working on being okay sleeping in her crate. She happily goes in her crate to eat, but will sing the song of her people in protest for a few minutes at bed time. She is getting better each day though. She will scratch at the door when she needs to go outside. She loved the children in her previous home, so a family with kids to play with would be great! We think she would do best in a home without cats, or in a home with dog savvy cats. There are cats in her current foster home, but she is a little too cat curious for her foster mom's comfort level.
The adoption fee for Ivy is $400. This includes all vaccines (4 Distemper/Parvo, 2 Lepto, a Rabies, and a Bordetella), appropriate dewormings, microchipping and the spay/neuter surgery.
