Dec. 24, 2022: Ivy is a 1.5-year-old giant schnauzer mix in urgent need of a foster home. She is 52 lbs of love and is one of the sweetest dogs you’ll meet.
In March, Ivy was found by animal control after complaints about stray dogs. She was taken to a shelter, but after a few weeks of being looked over, she was on the euthanasia list. The shelter sent this poor dog to boarding, and she was put into a concrete kennel 24/7 for seven months.
The shelter cannot afford to keep Ivy in the boarding kennel, so she is at risk of being put back on the euthanasia list at the old shelter.
To prevent this from happening, Ivy is in urgent need of a foster or forever home.
Ivy is a sweet and loving dog and deserves snuggles and love. Ivy is dog friendly and would prefer a home with space for her to wander around and get used to her new surroundings.
