We knew we wanted an English flare to her name. Ivy is the product of our first TCI from an international breeding. Her father, Riley, lives in England. The climbing evergreen plant known as ivy makes a simple, charming name for this beautiful dog. Derived from an Old English word, Ivy represents fidelity.
Ivy is very people oriented, loves the field and her pack. She is a very well built young dog with a happy demeanor.
