Adoptable Dog of the Week – Ivory

A vision in white, Ivory, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, is an angel! Living in Hooksett, New Hampshire, this 4-year-old White German Shepherd has so much love to give. Ivory is already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ivory’s Tale:

My name is Ivory and I am a 4-year-old, spayed female White German Shepherd, tipping the scales at 82 lbs. I am both housebroken and crate-trained, and I walk very well on a leash.

I am super sweet and like women very much, but need a little time to warm up to men and new visitors in my home. I prefer calmer kids over 10 years old – the high energy of little kids can make me nervous.

I really enjoy playtime with my canine foster siblings, but I sometimes get a bit overly excited and start to play a little too rough. I admit to having a squeaky toy fetish and can be possessive of them if other dogs come near. Luckily, I am a smart girl and respond quickly to any verbal corrections. I am too curious about cats, so I need to go to a no-cat home.

I would like to have a fenced yard because I would love the freedom to run around as fast as I can! But rest assured that when playtime is over and I come back inside, I am a calm and quiet girl in the house.

I have such great potential and will make an awesome member of any family willing to continue with my training and give me structure. Is that family yours?
