Ivy -- Video! American Eskimo Dog Adult Female
Sweet, sweet Ivy. She came from the worst, and we're on a mission to find her the best. Ivy was confiscated by animal control from a filthy hoarding situation in which many kids were also removed from the home. She was skin and bones and barely had the strength to walk. She was missing a ton of hair though now she has the silkiest most exquisite full coat. She's had many many money-making litters of puppies. It's obvious her whole life has been 1 of horrible neglect.Ideally, Ivy would love a person all to herself. She'd be a adorable constant loving companion, but she bonds incredibly hard to 1 person so would likely not be a nice fit for a couple or family (unless a couple was really willing to work with her on that). She's ok around other animals but doesn't give them the time of day, she's all about her person and will do about anything to be near them, or even better, on them. She loves to lay on her back in your arms and gaze into your eyes while you rub her belly and whisper to her.Ivy's lack of exposure to the world means she's scared of everything new. She will unfold into a precious dog in the next year or so, but we need someone patient and kind to give her the time and space and commitment to do that. A routine and confidence building are important for her wellbeing. Getting her out into the world slowly is important.Ivy is likely 8-10 or so years old, and she weighs about 25 lbs now. She's spayed, has been treated for heart-worm, is up-to-date on vaccinations, wormed, and is micro chipped. Her adoption payment is $250.The 1st step to adopt Ivy is to read all about adoption with Happy Tails Rescue Inc. and fill out an application.

We have no shelter, all of our animals are cared for in loving foster homes until their forever home match is found. All of our animals are fully vetted before adoption, including distemper, rabies, and bordatella vaccines, a heart worm test, fecal test, micro chip, and are spayed/neutered. If you're interested in meeting 1 of our animals please fill out an application 1st. If approved we will then arrange a meet and greet. Happy Tails does not do same day adoptions because we do a short home visit to make sure our animals are being placed in safe environments.
