Profile

Ivy is a loving Golden who needs a stable and quiet home. She gets along beautifully with other dogs and would prefer older or no children. Ivy has cluster siezures and is responding well to medication. It would be best for her to be adopted within the Twin Cities so we could make her transition slow and gentle.

Ivy was a wonderful foster dog to have around our home. We called her the heart thief as she took a little piece of everyone's heart wherever she went. I'm sure she'll continue to do that in her new home with her wonderful new two-legged parents.

Some say Ivy won the lottery. Others know Dave and Judy won the lottery! Together they make a special team and will be in my heart forever. Judy and Ivy are inseparable! (Dave is often off doing a RAGOM transport).

Today, Ivy spends a lot of time at the assisted living facility where Judy and Dave's folks live. There, too, she melts hearts.

Ivy is a beautiful 3-year-old purebred Golden Retriever who was abandoned in a parking lot. Saved by a Good Samaritan in that parking lot, she was then passed around to several different homes over several months. Her most recent home took very good care of her, but Ivy suffers from cluster seizures and needs stability.

It is important she has a slow, gentle transition into a permanent home where she can begin the Golden life. Be warned: Ivy is a heart thief - with every new encounter, she wins over the love of another.

Ivy has been with my two resident dogs and has done really well. She also likes to have time on her own and time with anyone who will snuggle with her. I think Ivy would do best in a nice, quiet home where she can get tons of affection. She's a lover.

Here comes the irresistible heart thief!

We are closing in on about two weeks with our houseguest, Ivy. She's a quiet little lady, but by no means petite. There have been no seizures, which means her meds are working.

Ivy provides a sense of calm with her gentle demeanor. She stays out of trouble. When our resident rascals are planning for a counter-surfing expedition or garbage dig, Ivy can be found enjoying a sunny nap on the other side of the house.

She does take part in digging for voles in the back yard, a habit she's learned from our two dogs. (Note to self: Do not fill in big dig holes with fresh horse manure from your friend's barn when there are three retrievers who will roll in it with the delight of a pig in mud on a hot summer day.) To the best of my knowledge, the pigs do not eat it when they are done bathing themselves in it, and the dogs do.

Enjoying a quiet nap.
