About Me: Oh, hello! I'm Ivy and my favourite hobbies include zoomin' around the yard and seeing how hard & fast I can wag my tail. My foster parents say that I'm a real cuddle bug, and that I'll be an 'only child' in my furever home (I guard my food and toys from other dogs, so it's best that I spend my time only with humans.) I have a couple of things I'm working on with my foster parents...I pull on the leash a bit and am working on my recall. My skin gets itchy so I'm on some special food that makes it better. I'm great in my kennel, great in the car, and will 100% be your little spoon. I'm a quick learner and I would love love LOVE to get to know you and call you my forever. Let me know if you want to meet!!

Health Notes: Ivy was returned to hart after a few years, but not because of any fault of her own. When Ivy returned she was very healthy and happy. Originally, Ivy came into hart's care after consuming a tube of Gorilla Glue. She required surgery to remove the foreign body from her stomach and ultimately she was surrendered and transferred to hart. We noticed that Ivy seems to have some food sensitivities (redness, itchy skin and slight hair loss) so she has been put onto a hypoallergenic diet. Ivy's adoptive parents should be aware of this and be prepared to discuss food sensitivities and a treatment plan with their veterinarian. Ivy is up to date on DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.

Behavior Notes: Ivy has a great temperament. While she does get along with dogs who are same size or bigger than her, Ivy does resource guard bones and new toys. She will attack the other dog whether they are near by or not, and will cause injury, so we do recommend that she goes to a home with no dogs or cats. She loves people, but do recommend older children with her, as she has a very hard tail and can cause harm to a small child if they get hit by it. She is fully house trained and crate trained. She is a puller on leash and due to her very high energy, she does need daily walks. Would you like to help work on her recall training? She does have prey drive (confirmed with rabbits and squirrels). She loves cuddles and pets and she's so great in the car (who wants an errand buddy?!).
