While this lady loved the dogs, the conditions and situation in which they lived had caused the dogs to become shy. We have been keeping them in a kennel together and we bring them inside the Adoption Center for socialization. While still shy, they are doing better and several of them have been adopted.
However, anyone who is interested must be very devoted, patient and understanding of what these dogs have been through and be very gentle and patient with them through their adoption transition. One of our staff has adopted one and would be happy to discuss with you how the transition went with his dog and his family.
Dolly was 5 1/2 yrs old when she came to us. She is not house trained, but they are trained to use a pee pad. She is current on all vaccines, heartworm negative, dewormed, on heartworm preventative, and she is spayed and microchipped.
