Meet sweet Izzy!
Hi there folks, my name is Izzy and I’m six years young – the perfect age for a GSP. I’m not so crazy with energy that I wear you out, and I have the maturity to know right from wrong. Just a little calmer than your typical GSP too…my foster Mom loves that!
I enjoy a good backyard sniffing and sunbathing and the neighborhood squirrels love to tease me because I am fascinated by them! I’ve seen cats, and I’m curious about them, but not like the squirrels. Given my sweet disposition and I might be okay with them – I’d just need to meet them first. I’m what you call a lounge lizard, but not in a human kind of way…I love to lounge and snuggle and sleep right next to my humans. So it’s super important to me that you would love that also.
I had a benign cyst removed from my eye so there’s a tiny scar there…but I think my overall beauty makes it hard to see that tiny thing. Probably due to a very active youth, I have some arthritis in my legs so I need some supplements in my diet to keep my joints limber. And a little stiffness will NOT stop me from enjoying my twice-daily long walks (something I would really love to continue at my forever home…I like to scout the neighborhood, make friends with everyone and their dogs, and show off my family).
My former owner did not crate train me well so I do not like being crated. And I’m a people kind of dog so I want to be with you all the time…if you leave me alone I will be super sad. So I want a family that has another dog for me to hang with and keep me company when you can’t take me with you…or even better, a human that is home a lot (and also wants to be with me all the time). Oh, and I do NOT like thunderstorms so the best thing for me is to be with you when those happen (preferably under the covers).
I’m a very smart, good girl and I do not destroy toys or anything else in my home. I also watch my weight so you’ll probably need to encourage me to eat…and remind me that I’m not fat so it’s okay.
My foster Mom says I am one of the sweetest dogs she’s ever been around, I am a real cuddle bug, I love my squeaky toys (and my hoomans) and I’m a gentle soul. That last part sounds so sweet like her… And I might add, I know how to get attention (I’m not shy) and have no problem asking for a hug!
If you’re interested in adding me to your family, please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster Mom Tricia.
Also, since I am an adult GSP that is fully vetted and temperament evaluated, my adoption fee is $375.
