Meet Addy

Addy’s story reminds us all what rescue is really all about. This shy, submissive 35-pound Lab mix comes from a hoarding situation and will need a patient, loving adopter to provide her the support she needs in order to acclimate to her new life in a safe home. 

Within her foster home, Addy is already showing signs of progress towards becoming more relaxed and confident, always trying her very best to make her people happy. She knows to never chew on anything that doesn’t belong to her, has never shown any sign of aggression, and coexists with the resident dog (though will bark if he intrudes her safe space). She currently uses pee pads as she learns that it is safe to be leashed and go potty outside. A home with a fenced-in yard would be ideal for Addy to gain confidence navigating the outside world. 

This 10-year-old sweetheart will happily accept pets and enjoys lounging on her dog bed near her humans. When her people are not around, however, Addy worries. This gentle girl is not used to being alone, so is not uncommon for Addy to bark when her people leave. Keeping the TV on, supplying low dose anti-anxiety medication, and proving that you will always come back will help Addy manage this anxiety.

Watching Addy grow into the confident, happy dog that she deserves to be will be the reward of a lifetime. It’s time this sweet girl gets a second chance at life.
