Ivy is not ready for adoption yet. Ivy was pulled over a year ago from Memphis Animal Services by another rescue. When the volunteer went to pick up Ivy who was already been known to be feral and fearful of people, she got loose from the volunteer in the parking lot and then made it out of the gate. Ivy was on the loose again for 3.5 months. Finally a local rescuer/trapper recovered Ivy with the intentions to rehabilitate Ivy and get her into a rescue. Unfortunately Ivy was left in a boarding with a family member for 7 plus months. We asked if we could take Ivy and get her into a foster home. Ivy has now been in a foster home for two months, she is housebroken, crate trained and gets along with her two foster sisters and foster brother. Ivy has started to warm up to her foster Mom, but Ivy still needs allot of work learning to trust people. She also needs to have entropic eye surgery which we are planning for October. We are hoping that after the surgery we can find Ivy a more permanent forever home.
All of our rescues are temperament tested around children of all ages, small and large dogs and cats. They all have basic training, IE; sit; down, come and walking on a lead. We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued dogs are kept in individual foster/volunteers homes. This gives them sometimes their first taste of having a family and being part of that family. Also, it provides us with the understanding of each individual rescue to match them to your family lifestyle and dynamics. As soon as we receive your application back, we will phone you to set up a home visit/meet & greet. If you are out of our area, we would request another rescue and/or veterinary office complete the home visit.
All of our rescues are completely vetted prior to adoption. Also, completed prior to adoptions are heartworm treatments as needed, any medical conditions treated (IE; allergies, demedex, etc.) and any surgeries for dogs coming into the rescue injured (IE; car accidents, etc.). Below is the vetting that all of our rescues receive prior to adoption. We only pull dogs from shelters and approximately 80% of our rescues come into the rescue heartworm positive. Those rescues are treated for heartworms prior to adoption.

We do complete home visits prior to being approved. They are not designed to turn adopters down, but to point out safety issues for this breed. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
