Ivy came to us as a stray and for a long time hid at the back of her kennel, very scared and worried about the world in general.  But over a period of time and with lots of love and patience from her carers, she has come a long way, now enjoying her walks, both on and off lead in our secure field, particularly if she has a doggy friend to share that walk with.

Ivy has been seen by our vet and given a clean bill of health.  She is still a very nervous girl of new people, particularly men, and also of new situations, but has the potential to build up the bond that she has with her carers, with a new family over time.  For Ivy we are looking for a calm environment, ideally with another dog, with someone/people who will have the time and patience to teach her that there is nothing to be afraid of.

To apply for Ivy, please email info@hollyhedge.org.uk stating your current situation & working hours and reasons for wanting to adopt her.  Please note, we will only be able to accept applications that match her needs.  Please also consider if your work hours and situation will still be suitable on a long term basis.  Thank you.
