A volunteer writes: “To know, know, know her Is to love, love, love her. Just to see her smile Makes my life worthwhile”. Lyrics made famous by The Beatles and they must have known I’d be singing this to Ivory some day. There isn’t anyone who’s met her who hasn’t fallen head over heels with this little dumpling. Surrendered with her son Mister (A1111439) due to landlord issues, Ivory comes with an outstanding resume. She lived with an 8 yo child, plays gently with adults and children, doesn’t guard her things, loves to cuddle, play chase and fetch, is “very” housetrained, and well behaved when left home alone. Ivory is so quiet in her kennel, happy to come out for a walk and a chance to go potty, has lovely leash manners, ignored other dogs we passed on our walk, posed for pictures like a pro, and is so gentle, sweet and calm you want to cuddle with her all day. As we walk she looks up with a smile, her tail wagging gently. Later in the day Ivory was snuggled with another volunteer, quietly getting more love, and the debate began about who loves her more!! She’s an absolute gem, the best cuddler on the planet and waiting to prove it to you. I’m the self proclaimed President of the Ivory Fan Club, but ready to relinquish my title to you, her new person. Ask to meet her today.
