Izzy Ann is just over 4 months old and about 27 pounds.
Izzy Ann is such a funny pup with a big personality, a playful, curious, and clumsy girl that is sure to keep you laughing! While she is a quirky girl in the best ways she is also a very smart, and active pup so she will need a family that will exercise her mentally and physically. She is a fast learner, super easy to train will do just about anything for a good treat. Izzy enjoys being near her people, but can happily entertain herself. She will go outside to sun bathe or just run around the backyard and play with toys.
She is submissive with new dogs, she will just fall over on her back when one approaches her. She really enjoys the company of other dogs once she gets comfortable she loves to rough house, wrestle and play chase.
Her foster home has lots of other dogs from 12 pounds- 60 pounds (7 in total), a couple of cats, a few goats, a herd of chickens, and a horse. She does fantastic with all the dogs - however since Izzy was rescued off the streets (after local business owners had seen her for weeks) she had to learn to survive on the streets at such a young age, and as such, she can be a little barky/growly when other dogs get near her food. She is working on that and getting much better. She does really well with all the other animals as well, but is still is still working on how to act and gaining her confidence around them. She is a large puppy has puppy mouthing and excitement - so a home with small children would not best for her.
Izzy is a joy. She is ready to come to Canada in September!
**Please note: Izzy Ann is too young to be spayed (altered). Her adoption fee includes a $200 refundable deposit on proof of altering prior to 7 months old.
