found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Aly was picked up by a rural animal control facility as a stray and she wasn’t claimed. She now has the opportunity now to find her forever family. Aly deserves a family who is as devoted to her as she will be to them. She needs to belong in a home where she will not be allowed to roam free and be safe, and where she can be confident in that fact that she is home forever and will never be lost or abandoned again. Aly would do well in an active home. She is also great in the car.
Aly enjoys all forms of exercise offered she and she requires daily walking and activity. She loves tearing around the yard. Without regular exercise, a dog tends to get into mischief. Aly is a normal dog that is full of energy and she does well with at least two long walks a day no matter what the weather. She loves to play fetch or with any toy that is available. She also loves to chew and is provided plenty of dog chew toys.
Aly likes to mouth people. She does not do it to hurt or defensively and we are slowly training this bad habit out of her by using stern corrections. She is doing this less and less but potential new homes will need to continue to reinforce this training. She very much takes over Lab characteristics and mouthing is very much a young Lab thing…they love having things in their mouths!!!
Aly is completely house trained and will go to the door when she needs to go out. Aly is also crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night and when alone in the house. We are still in disbelief that such a beautiful and lovable dog was abandoned. Aly is great with other dogs and has settled in nicely with her foster sister. She loves to play. She would do well in a home with another friendly, well behaved dog, but this is not a necessity for her. Aly would do just as well being the only dog and getting all the attention to herself. She will need a family willing to devote the time to make sure that she is properly socialized and trained.
Aly is also great with her three foster cats and pretty much ignores them Aly is not being fostered in a home with children and we believe that with her loving nature, She would do fine with older children (over 10 years) that have been educated on how to treat dogs. Aly has been taught basic obedience and knows "sit", and we are working on “lie down” ,“time for bed”, and “shake”.
When we had Aly in for her spay we also had xrays done and we have discovered that she has mild hip dysplasia. This does not affect her negatively and when you see her romping and jumping for the hose water you will know that she is not suffering from it. It is something her adoptive family should be aware of though as it may cause her some arthritis in her hips as she gets older. An active lifestyle and keeping her fit and trim will do wonders in keeping her hips in good shape. We are also feeding her a joint diet and have her on a joint supplement just as a preventative. The food is no more expensive than a regular high quality diet and the supplements are not costly so she doesn’t require expensive upkeep for this condition. She is on no medication as our vet assured us she does not need any as she is young and very mobile.
Dogs are very cute and hard to resist but they do require a lot of time commitment and are not for everyone. Aly’s rough start has not held her back from loving life and being a happy, affectionate girl. She is looking for a forever home to share her life with. If you are looking for a dog that is devoted, easy going and super sweet, Aly may just be the perfect one for you!
All Pound Dog Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, de-wormed (if required), and micro-chipped prior to adoption. The adoption donation of $400 is applied to assist in the costs of veterinary care and the overall care of the dog.
