It doesn't take a expert to see that Ivy was seriously suffering when she was found on the streets of Edgware in London back in October. The local dog warden was so worried about her red raw skin, he took her straight to the RSPCA's Hemsworth Animal Hospital for help.
For the past two months, Ivy has been recuperating at the RSPCA's Millbrook centre in Chobham. After being ravaged by mange, Ivy's snowy coat is now her crowning glory - and she's ready to start her new life.
Liz Wood, deputy manager at RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre said, “Ivy is a really affectionate, lively girl who is full of beans, and we are so pleased with how well she has recovered and her beautiful coat that has come through so quickly. She was in such a bad way when she was found, we weren’t even sure what breed she was, but now we think she may be a Samoyed.
“I’m pleased to say Ivy is ready to find a new home. She needs an active home as she’s very bouncy, and though she is very keen to please, she will need someone who can carry on with her training. Ivy’s good with other dogs but we feel that because she is so lively, she’d only be suitable to be rehomed with older children. Whoever rehomes her will be a lucky person - she’s a special dog who has been through quite an ordeal, but has a lot of love to give.”
