Austin Dog Rescue is made up purely of volunteers. Each dog is sheltered within a home in the Austin area. As such, there is no physical shelter to visit the dog at. If you think you may be interested in a particular dog now or in the future, please fill out an application form. People with approved application forms are prioritized over people who haven’t yet applied.

Ivy likes to spend her days gazing out the window at nature, playing with toys, running laps in the yard, hanging out with her humans, going on a neighborhood walk, or taking a car ride. Game of fetch? Yes, please! Fetch is one of Ivy’s favorite activities.

Ivy has a sweet personality, mixed in with a fun, silly, and goofy side that has her foster humans cracking up daily.

She would love a yard with at least a 6’ fence so she can run around and burn some energy. Given a shorter fence, she would hop over to chase a squirrel or whatever else she may find interesting. Ivy would thrive as an only dog so she can soak up all the human attention. She is dog selective. With her natural herding instincts, she would do best in a home without a cat.

Ivy loves all humans. She knows basic commands and is a good girl overall. Like many dogs, she would benefit from basic training and manners. She has spent time with elementary and middle school-aged children and was great with them. Until she learns a bit more about manners, she would do best in a home without very small kiddos.

Ivy is crate trained, house trained, spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Ivy was treated for heartworms while with Austin Dog Rescue, and now she is ready to find her new person or people!
