Meet Ivie

Just 13# at her last weigh-in, this little lady has had a rough time of it--starting when her former family surrendered her to a county shelter. Luckily, STAF was able to rescue her before her euthanasia date--but NOT before Ivie contracted parvo. No sooner had we pulled her than she was rushed to the vet. Thanks to early and excellent medical care, some serious TLC from her foster mom, and Ivie's tough little fighting spirit, she is now fully recovered and ready to begin a long, healthy, happy life with her forever home.

Ivie is just around a year old, and very affectionate. Her exposure to other dogs has been limited during her recovery period, but she does seem to enjoy the company of fellow canines. In true chihuahua fashion, she barks at some noises and people. She is crate-trained (sleeps through the night) and housetrained for the most part, with occasional "over excited" accidents. She enjoys taking walks, and hanging with the gang at doggy daycare.

Ivie tends to be timid at first, but when she warms up she will be a heartbeat at your feet. Be sure to check out Ivie the doggie-daycare social butterfly in the video along side her photos. She would do well with another dog and patient, gentle humans. If you have an extra-special spot in your home and heart for this extra-special girl, Ivie is eager to meet you!

• All of our animals are spayed/neutered and current on shots.
• We do not do same-day adoptions; we ask that you return for a follow-up visit before taking an animal home.
• You must be 21 years or older to adopt from STAF.
• We require a 4-foot-tall physical fence for homes with children under the age of 11. We also may require a physical fence for specific dogs on a case-by-case basis, depending on each dog’s behavior and exercise needs.
• Invisible fences: Due in part to increasing coyote activity/incidents in the area and the difficulty of predicting how a dog will respond to invisible fence training, we cannot adopt to homes with invisible fences unless otherwise noted in a dog’s profile.
• We do request vet and personal references.
• We can facilitate adoptions within a 75-mile radius of our Cincinnati-based shelter.
