All in the Family
Willow Max Owen



Ivy was a racing greyhound for 5 years, at which point we adopted her. She and and our other dogs, Willow and Max, are great buddies, and love their daily walks on our farm's 6 km of trails. Ivy has learned to use her long pointy nose to flip your hand onto the top of her head for patting. She has also learned that a quick waggle of her nose in your crotch (!) will also prompt a quick patting... rather startling to visitors, but we think it is cute! She still has the scars on her face from the racing muzzle, but all the emotional scars have disappeared.

What a beautiful girl, I love her coloring. How wonderful it is she has a real home now. The picture of her on the couch, upside down just shows she knows she is loved.

Ivy's beautiful. All dogs should get to live a comfy retirement like hers. Thanks for rescuing her and giving her a loving home. Give her kisses for me, and pats!

Greyhound!!! Love Greyhounds. She is a happy happy girl. You can tell because she is pulling the classic legs in the air sleeping pose.

Congratulations on your new addition (Max), and on your beautiful family - in profile, Ivy looks so much like my Lucy that they could be twins! How fun it will be to watch all three of them bounding around your property. Who is the leader of the pack?

***Ivy is just gorgeous ~ Love her markings! Greyhounds are amazing ~ great dogs! I'm sure Ivy is just perfect. And learning to flip your hand up with her nose to get attention ~ how clever! Lol! But just one thing ~ you say she was featured, but there's no feature date on her profile? Message me! I hope you have many more wonderful years with beautiful Ivy. Hugs & treats from Pippin ~ come check out my dogs, and please leave lots of comments. Thanks!***
