Pet of the Week: Ivy the dog

Mass Appeal

In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Ivy, a 1-year-old dog. Lee Chambers, Manager of Marketing & Communications at Dakin Humane Society, shared more about Ivy and about other upcoming events.

Name: Ivy
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Color: White with brown


Ivy is a young girl who loves to play with tennis balls, squeak toys and more! She takes other dogs on a case-by-case basis, and while we don’t know her history of living with cats (or not), we can look into that. She has a sweet nature and a high energy level, so be sure to give her plenty of opportunity to run and play. Ivy would benefit from some dog training to sharpen her manners a bit, but she’s a terrific walking buddy and a great addition to the household! Come meet her at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
