Meet Steffani! She and her sister, Brittni, were surrendered to ACS by a young man who had adopted their mother not knowing the dog was pregnant at the time. On Christmas day, his new furry family member presented him with five little babies. The young man was able to find homes for three of the pups and asked if we could take in Brittni and Steffani and find them homes. He told us that the momma dog was around 25-30 lbs and looked like a small Lab but the breed make-up of the daddy is a mystery. Judging from Steffani's coloring and conformation, we're guessing she takes after mom more than dad but there might be some possible Redbone Coonhound in her. In June 2019, she weighed right at 30 lbs and she probably still has some growing left to do. Steffani is a great gal and is very sweet and loving. Of the two pups, she does seem to be a little more needy than her calmer and less vocal sister. Her former owner told us she was great with children but keep in mind that, as a young dog, Steffani is very exuberant and enthusiastic. Although she doesn't mean any intentional harm, she could easily knock down a young child. Growing up with a dog should be an enjoyable experience so it is important that the age of the dog and the age of any children are compatible. Steffani would do great with a family whose children are old enough to be dog-savvy and know how to deal with a rambunctious young dog with a lot to learn and excess energy to spare! A fenced yard is also a must for Steffani as we suspect that nose of hers will get her into a lot of trouble if she's not safely confined when outside. It's been our pleasure watching Steffani grow from a pudgy puppy into a leggy and lovely young dog but we know it's time for her to have her Happy Ending living in a Furever Home with her Special Person. To find out if Steffani would be a good fit for you and your household, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her! /// STEFFANI IS SPONSORED BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM THRU DECEMBER 2019.
