Busy Izzy — or Izz as she’s nicknamed — was a local shelter surrender before coming into the care of LEASH Saving Lives Rescue a few months ago.

But after being fostered with the group for many weeks, there is still no interest in this beautiful brindle girl.

It’s hard to understand why.

Her foster parents say the one-and-a-half-year-old girl is super calm on walks, and walks loose leash. They said she would do very well on off-leash walks and hikes too.

Her recall is fantastic. She is “obsessed with all things balls, sticks, and frisbees and only wants to chase (and be chased).”

She is active, but also a couch potato once she’s had her exercise. She loves watching TV. In particular, she loves watching soccer matches and will follow the ball on screen.

Her newest trick is “Clean Up,” which means she puts all her toys back in her toy box after she is done playing.

The 75-pound, medium energy pup is being fostered as the only dog in the home, but LEASH believes she would be okay living with another calm dog. Older, dog-savvy children who understand respecting boundaries are okay.

She has not been tested with cats.

If you think you’re the peanut butter to Izzy’s jam please connect with LEASH and fill out an application. It is also strongly recommended that interested parties read through its FAQs to ensure you qualify for adoption with LEASH.

Izzy’s adoption fee is $400, which includes up-to-date vaccinations, microchip, and flea treatments. Adopters will also receive a free veterinary exam at Alouette Animal Hospital in Maple Ridge, and six weeks of complimentary pet insurance.

LEASH does adopt out dogs to people living in condos and rental units, however, the landlord’s permission must be given.
