Meet Annie PA

Hello everyone, meet Annie!
Annie came to ACDRA after being found in a bad home situation. She suffered from malnutrition and other issues stemming from a lack of veterinary care. Luckily, she found her way to the rescue and has since gotten to her ideal weight and is now healthy, vaccinated and spayed.
Annie is very shy and will take time to warm up to her new people. We cannot predict if she will ever fully trust her people, but we have seen remarkable improvement in her since she’s been in foster. While we don’t know all of her background, we know she is very scared of loud noises and is protective of her space (like her crate or bed) and food. However, she loves to be outside playing with other dogs once she gets to know them.
Annie is learning to walk on a leash but could be happy as a house dog with regular outside playtime.
Because of her extreme fears of new people, situations and loud noises, Annie’s ideal home would be a quiet adult home with a regular routine and minimal hustle bustle, a low to moderate amount of exercise, but with companionship of her people. She would be the ideal dog for a work from home family who would like a quiet pup to keep them company while they work and be happy with a walk around the neighborhood in the evenings. Her new family would need to respect that she’s been through a lot and give her time to learn to trust. While she looks like a cattle dog, she does not have the typical personality of an ACD. Applicants will be screened carefully to be sure that it’s a good fit for all.
Annie has shown little interest in the cat, guinea pig, and chickens she shares her foster home with. She likes to play with other dogs that respect her boundaries (her best friend here is a 1 year old puppy). Given her past, she should be fed and crated separately from other pets in the house. Given her fearfulness, she would need to be in a home with a secure (physically fenced) in yard as she is a flight risk and can back out of a collar.
Annie is a young adult, about 2-3 years old, 34#, fully vaccinated, spayed, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. She is crate trained and housebroken. She recently also had a dental cleaning.
If you are interested in learning more about Annie, please contact her foster home at She is being fostered in Pittsburgh PA.
