Here is an update I sent this AM to the Animal Hospital that has been such an important part of her 'CHAIN OF SUCCESS' Story!


Ivy wants to say that she weighs 43.9 KGs today(96.58 pounds). She has her staples removed today and, while you can see the underlaying sutures, all looks good. She wears her lovely lampshade as needed. She is sleeping a good 5.5 hours each night before having to go out and zero SA issues. She is hanging out at work with me today and, other
than some initial whining and barking, has settled down for a nap.

I chipped her today and picked up a dose of Revolution for I keep the dogs in year round
as we are a rescue. We did her nails and she rocked starred that also.

I am just waiting for a fresh fecal sample to test.

She is doing really well with her obedience and, is a busy active plus smart girl.

While she loves playing with my own 5 month old Deaf/visually impaired Dane pups, she has made a fast
friend with an emaciated GD that we brought in on the 30th, that we named Kricket. One of her other best friends is a Haven dog we have, an almost 11 year old Dogo!

Already, I know she shall do best in a home that is active yet, not too busy for over stimulation and, flooding to occur and, then she just would love to focus and, become a bit overwhelmed. A home with at least one other right match personality
fit dog(male or female does not matter as long as it is a great fit), older kids are fine – 8 plus years of age and, a home that will give her a job – obedience, rally, or, even as she matures, therapy work.

She will love to have a good sized hard, plenty of dog friends and, love nice steady long walks. She is going to make a home an incredible addition as long as they understand to ensure that she needs her 'own' time to keep liking herself and, to learn to self-soothe and amuse when needed.

She has been off all SA meds since her arrival plus the 'bits' and, is thriving. I, professionally, truly do not feel that she requires any medication and, any right matched home will do 'right' by her also. 

Great puppy!!!

She wants me to tell all of you at the hospital, thanks for saving her and, being so kind and generous.

No picture I can take will ever do this girl justice on how absolutely lovely she is!!
