About Ivy

“Hi my name is Ivy. I am the sweetest little girl and I live with my foster lady and foster man. I came into care what they call “shut down”. I have been in care for about 3 weeks now and my foster lady is happy to say I have moved up to being shy and timid if things are different than what I am used to.

On a normal day I wag my tail, I come to get pets and scratches, and I eat treats from their hands! I zoom around the yard full at speed and I even play with my dog friend Sampson. His sister Delilah shows me her teeth so I know she is saying back off – not so close to me. I love bedtime because I jump on the bed and foster lady and I have “silly play” and cuddles and then I go lay on my bed. I always potty outside. I am a good girl!

Foster lady says I am making good progress but new things scare me. The leash makes me turn into a pancake so foster lady puts a foot long piece of leash on my collar for me to drag around but that is scary too! I had a truck ride in my crate and never said a peep. When we got to North Haven to get my shots I was stressed but not mean or shut down. Foster lady says baby steps; I just need to take baby steps. I will be staying in the foster home for a little longer but my foster lady is sure I will make a wonderful companion for somebody. I have a very sweet disposition with a silly zoomy side.

Oh I almost forgot…I am smart! My foster lady says I learned people words really easy. Inside, outside, come when called, back off, go through (gates). I came into care scared of my own shadow” – xo, Ivy
