OccuPaws Always Faithful “Ivy” RETIRED
Female Yellow Labrador Retriever
Born: September 14, 2015
Breeder: OccuPaws and Neverest – co breeders
Raised by: Mark & Barb of Cross Plains, WI
Mary & Gerry of Mazomanie, WI
Kathy & Jim of DePere, WI
Due Date: January 9, 2018 Ivy is a littermate of Ivan, Isaac, Ike, and Indy and the daughter of Callie & Sailor. Callie is the mother of guide dogs Aurora and Chance, so we have great hopes for Ivy’s babies.
She was bred in November 2017 to Chester from The Captains Labs and had 4 puppies (Carmel, Champ, Coach and Courage) on January 8, 2018. All of the pups will stay in the program until they decide a guide dog career is not for them.
Ivy is pregnant again and due to have about a half dozen puppies in Mid March, 2019!
Ivy had 7 puppies in her second litter, 6 females and 1 male. This is the most precocious litter we have ever seen – they are fast at everything. 7 puppies in 2 hr 37 min, Miss Orange was walking at 8 days and almost all were walking at 12 days. Fortunately this time, Ivy is a super Mom, paying close attention to her babies.
