Ivy is a rescue who turned into a foster failure, which is something I didn't think would happen! Zoe and Lexi have always been the perfect pair of pups and I never thought that adding a third dog into the mix would feel right. However, this little cutie came along and surprised me.
Ivy is a hot little mess of medical issues and she was supposed to be a long term foster. I brought her home back in October and the plan was to get her through her tick fever, cherry eye surgery, spay surgery, and bilateral FHO surgery and then put her up for adoption. However, she fit herself into our home and our lives so seemlessly that we decided we just couldn't let her go! So, instead we fostered her long enough to get her over the tick fever and have her cherry eye and spay surgeries done, and then we adopted her. On the advice of our vet, we opted not to do FHO surgery on her at this time. She actually gets along perfectly, so we are just going to see what the future brings.
Here are some photos I took of her a few days after I brought her home as a foster. I will say that Ivy is a tough one to photograph! She is a sweet dog, but she is a bit timid and she was not a fan of the camera. However, I did manage to sneak in a handful of shots of her:
Isn't she the cutest?!...
