5* retirement home wanted for this truly remarkable, kind and loving boy.

Now in his twilight years Ivo requires a kind, loving home to retire too. Adorable, gentle & faithful. Sociable with everyone he meets and would happily live in a multi-dog household.

Although his info from SSS-S gives his approximate age as 5/6yrs we believe him to be older, but one thing is certain, Ivo has had an incredibly hard life. A Sarajevo street dog for a number of years, then a further 4 years in kennels. Throughout this time he has had to cope with incredible heat throughout the summer and extreme cold in the winter.

It’s now time for Ivo to step back from this life and secure the special, kind and loving home he so truly deserves.  We saw his info at SSS-S and just knew we had to get him over to us in order to maximise his chances of a life that every dog deserves.


Despite his hardships, Ivo is in pretty good shape. He favours his front paw which we suspect is arthritic and although he is responding well to paracetamol we are awaiting a vet check to be sure there isn’t a more serious underlying problem. Ivo – a truly inspirational 5* gentleman ♥️

If  you think you can offer Ivo a loving home or would like to find out more information, please email us and fill in the application email that will appear in the body of the email.

Ivo would love to meet you and can be viewed and walked any morning (including Saturday & Sunday) between the hours of 9-11am at the JFD rehoming centre, Brailsford, Ashbourne, Derbyshire DE6 3BE
