Ivy is smart and friendly and gets along great with other dogs. It’s recommended that she has another friendly doggy companion. She loves outdoor activities like walks and hikes, and has really good endurance, too. She can walk for hours on end.
In the beginning, she will be scared, nervous. Let her get to know you and approach you at her own pace. Someone who knows how to make friends with a nervous dog is suggested. Simply give her time, patience is key. She needs a while to adjust to a whole new environment, much like us humans. Change can be scary sometimes, but with lots of love and care, she will open up!
When Ivy was first fostered, she was shaking for a whole day. Clearly, she has had a rough past. She only came out for meals, because she is smart and knew she needed food. Eventually, though, she warmed up to her foster parents, and let them touch her. She showed trust. And that was a bright moment for them all. It’s a bright moment you could get, too.
Ivy is a wonderful dog, and as mentioned, smart. She is potty trained, she knows how to use the doggy door, and she learns quickly. She doesn’t make messes and is fine with staying inside the house. She hardly even barks and doesn’t chew on random objects. Ivy will make a very loyal and loving companion for a patient and loving home.
Ivy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. To meet or adopt Ivy, fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.
