Ivan is a one year old, Plott Hound/Pointer mix.  He was found as a stray outside Belton, MO and was taken to the shelter but his family never came for him.  Ivan was then adopted by Canine Rescue and Training Academy.  He is a very energetic and smart boy.  Ivan loves to make people happy and is always up to cuddle.  They do not come much sweeter than this little man!
