Ivy is a bright-eyed and alert 2 year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix female who was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter by her owner along with her 6 month old pup Isabelle. We don’t know what caused this mother/daughter duo to lose their home but they’re not looking back and are focused on having lots of fun each day in their foster home. Ivy was a natural in front of the camera. She is very food-motivated and eager to please so working with her on obedience training would be lots of fun. Ivy definitely has the energy to keep up with the big dogs and might enjoy trying out agility after she completes some basic obedience with her new family. She has done well with crate training in her foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules readily in her new home with some positive and consistent direction from her new family. Ivy definitely likes to be busy so wouldn’t enjoy being left alone for long workdays. She would enjoy having a playful canine buddy in her new home and a family who wants to incorporate her into lots of fun daily activities. Ivy is going to make a fantastic companion for one very lucky active person or family. She weighs about 14 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
