BREED: Australian Shepard

Describe your dog.

Ivy is a perennial puppy. She loves company, being centre of attention and cheese. She is very soft and gets more than her fair share of pats as a result.

Describe your home.

Home is a renovated California Bungalow in the Arts and Crafts style with a modern rear addition.

What sort of energy does your dog bring to your home?

Ivy is full of energy if a walk or a ball is involved. Otherwise she will move quietly to wherever people are and sleep. She is a calming influence.

Whats your dogs favourite hanging out spot/furniture/room etc?

Ivy likes to sleep in the library, a central point where she can be in contact with whoever is home. When the older adults are away she likes to “visit” the younger family members in the upstairs bedrooms and lie on the beds.

What makes your dog unique?

Ivy is soft both physically and in nature. She draws people to her.

How did you choose your dogs name?

Ivy came to us prior to our renovating. At the time the front garden and fence was dominated by ivy. We love botanical names and it stuck.
