We adopted Ivy (Ivory at the Shelter) in November 2015. She has been such a blessing. We went to check on another dog, but Ivy kept jumping every time we would pass her cage, so we went back, asked about her and took her home that day. She is such a good dog – very friendly, playful and loves to cuddle!!! She spends her day with my 77-year-old father and they are so good for each other. She also spends her time with my family, including two kids who absolutely love her! They take her on field trips and swimming in our pond. This summer, she was taken out on our boat for the first time! She was pretty scared at first, but she is very trusting of us and is now an “Outward Hound”!!!
