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

She likes to spend her days taking walks around the neighborhood, gazing out the window at nature (squirrel!), playing with toys, taking a car ride, and just hanging out with her people. Game of fetch? Yes, please! Fetch is one of her favorite activities. Ivy finds joy in the little things - like finding an interesting stick on a walk and carrying it for a few blocks, dropping it, and then finding it again on the round trip.

Ivy would love a yard with at least a 6’ fence so she can run around and show you her zoomies. Ivy is dog selective and would thrive as an only dog so she can soak up all the human attention. With her natural herding instincts, she would do best in a home without a cat. Ivy loves humans of all ages.

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!
