Meet Annie

Meet Annie! This beautiful lady was abandoned outside the shelter on 7/25/23. She has been delightful since her arrival, making everyone smile and laugh! She has so much love to give that she can't contain herself and absolutely MUST jump up to give you a hug! Due to some mild jumping, some folks think she would do better with older children so she doesn't knock over any smallies! Annie has had good interactions with other dogs at the shelter and would love to meet your pup if you're considering her! Annie has been very lucky and got to go to a long term foster from 8/6 to 11/5. Annie did wonderful in foster care (see her notes below) and while she has been sad to be back at the shelter she has remained friendly and eager to please her handler's! Annie would do best in a child free home with no small pets. She has done well for dog meets, but does need a slow introduction. Annie is still looking for her forever home and has so much love to give. Read what staff / volunteers / and her foster say about her below:

Foster notes: Annie is a high-energy girl up for anything. If you want a
pup for running, hiking, biking, or camping, then Annie's your girl. A fenced in
yard or active family would be ideal. After she gets exercise, she's ready to
cuddle to give and get love. Annie has done very well with our 12-year old &
17- year old boys.

Per volunteer on 11/15: I took out Annie tonight and she was very good. When she saw me in front of her kennel, her tail immediately started wagging nice and loosely. She exited the kennel easily and we walked to the gate to exit out onto hunting park ave . She likes to sniff the grass and then we started a mile run which we finished in 10 min 30 sec. Annie is a very well behaved dog. She never jumps or grabs the leash, she looks back at me for reassurance with a big smile on her face and her tail wags after I lean over to pat her when we are finished. She's very treat motivated and walks right back into the kennel when you toss a treat inside. She's got plenty of energy but she's not a jumper at all. If someone had a big yard for her to run in whenever she wants to, I think she could live with young kids as her energy then wouldn't be an issue. She's affectionate and very treat motivated.

Per foster 11/1: She is: Snuggly, A good eater and pooper, House trained, Good with other dogs (after a pack walk), Crate tolerant. She needs help with: Leash pulling, Barking at outside noises (her sitters have said she doesn't do it with them as much so), Doesn't do well with cats or squirrels. She loves looking out windows and playing fetch. She does have a lot of energy and loves running. I've been taking her on bike rides and she loves it! Please let me know asap if you would be able to take her or know someone who would be interested in adopting her. I'd provide all the toys and food and things she's accumulated. She does barks at outside noises and when she sees other animals but it's something we have been working on. It absolutely breaks my heart to have to do this and I do not want to take her to the shelter. I'll provide her crate and toys, leashes clothes food etc. she's the sweetest girl and deserves a good home. She enjoys going fast and it really tries her out. She's learning how to be in other dogs spaces so a meet and greet would have to be done. She's not good w cats or kids.

Per staff 10/26: One hundred percent can vouch for this SWEET ANGEL! I have been able to look after her on short term bases and she's been WONDERFUL. I sadly can't take her full time because of my work schedule, but I am available for short stints/respite care when her full time foster needs assistance. She's an absolute snuggle bug and loves to look out windows. Did not have an issue with her barking, and is working really hard to be calmer around other dogs (but still will need to work on it!) Make some room in your heart for Annie and foster her today!

Per staff 9/27: She's a sweetheart who loves to cuddle. Needs 3 10-15 min walks a day eats her food well. She's a very smart pupper and will let you know when she has to potty by running to the door and looking at her leash. She can be a bit mouthy but that usually means she just wants to play or wants a bone. She loves looking outside and watching the neighbors. She does sleep in bed with me but she'll sleep on the floor if need be. She's noted to have good dog meets in shelter but she seems to be leash reactive w me. So a meet and greet would have to be done if there are other dogs in the home. She's good with all adult humans (sorry no little people for this girl)

Per staff 8/4: Annie greeted me at the front of her kennel with a loose body, soft eyes, and a wagging tail. She dodged the leash initially but then let me leash her. She jumped right out of the kennel and pulled very strongly all the way to the eval room. She put her front legs on my lap for pets, and allowed all over handling including her ears, feet, and tail. She is very treat motivated as well. She is playful and will pounce on toys when you throw them, but does not grab them at first. However, after playing some tag I found that Annie does enjoy playing with stuffed toys.

Per volunteer 8/1: Annie has a zest for life! She pulls on her leash, but it's manageable. She is just super excited about being outside. We went for a nice walk near the track and she loved sniffing and exploring. In the dog run she was affectionate, drooly, and showed off her sit and stay skills. She's so much fun. It's noted that she's had good dog meets.
