ivy - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, I’m Ivy and I’m 6!
I’m looking for a forever homethat doesn't mind me being really shy at first. It takes me some time to warm up to strangers, but give me a few weeks and you won't be sad you were patient. I love to snuggle under blankets on your lap and cuddle up in bed. I think snuggling with women is the best, but gentle men can be the ticket too - they just take a bit longer for me to trust.
I've been taking walks almost every day with my foster parents and I've really learned to become more brave. I still like to hide behind their legs when I see strange dogs or people, but I'm getting better. That's not to say I don't like other dogs - I do. I just have to get to know them first.
My foster parents are taking great care of my teeth by brushing them every day and they're pleased with how well I handle it. I also sit patiently while they clean my ears and trim my nails. I strive to be a good girl.
And guess what? Crates can be a good safe place for me when no one is around. I admit I protest a tiny bit at first but then I cuddle up in my blanket and take a nap. I love blankets.
My potty habits are improving, but I need help remembering to go outside to potty! Please be patient as I learn this important skill. My foster parents say I'm a smart girl. I even know what “come” means, but get nervous about approaching humans sometimes.
I really hope to find a forever family soon - one that I can become familiar with and bond with. Will you please be my forever family? I'm crossing my paws that you are.
