Meet the wonderful Isabella, aka "Izzy".
This girl has quite the story...
Izzy lived in the woods for about a month, surviving on her own every day after being dumped there! While Izzy was in the midst of trees and forested area, there was luckily a woman who lived out there who was nice enough to feed and give water to Izzy. Because a life out there can be scary it took a lot of effort from rescue volunteers to finally catch Izzy, but she is now safe and sound in foster care and learning what it's like to be a beloved family member!
Izzy is now learning how to be a dog, and although a lot of things still scare her, she is improving each and every day. Izzy really benefits from having other dogs to learn from, and she absolutely loves being with them. Another nice dog in her forever home would make Izzy a very happy little lady! She appears to already be potty trained, but could use some help with her basic manners like sit and stay. Izzy also walks wonderfully on the leash! When she is on walks with other dogs she is very confident and extremely happy, but without dogs tends to be a little more shy and weary of her surroundings. She loves to cuddle at your feet, and follow you around the house. She is overall a mellow little lady who just needs some love and care.
Izzy would do best in a home where she gets plenty of attention so she can learn to be a dog, but with someone who is patient and understands that she finds the world to be a little scary. She would love a home with another well behaved dog, and as she has not shown any interest in cats yet she may be okay in a home with a dog savvy feline. Exuberant younger kids may scare Izzy, so a home with older kids or no kids may be best.
