found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Staci is a 3-4 year old, heartworm negative, 50 pound vizsla/pit mix with the most gorgeous eyes we have had on any of our females to date. Staci is a proud, active young lady. She is the only female in this cycle of pups and uses that to her advantage. She is the belle of the ball over at the jail with a whole group of handlers following her around. She does have high drive though and because of her size, strength and activity level, she should not be placed in a home with small children or small animals BUT she has a great, solid, hard temperament which is perfect for living with older kids so we will do our best! She is really intelligent and eager to please.
While we were temperament testing her it became apparent that before her time as a Canine CellMate she had been abused or struck before. She is very hesitant with anything that looks like a rolled up newspaper--to the fact that she winces anytime a tubular object is being held around her. However as soon as the object is dropped she instantly recovers. Poor girl.
We felt confident that Staci would really enjoy going to the Poochella Event this past Sunday so we took her. Guess what, she did fantastic! Everyone said she was just as friendly as could be and was not afraid of people passing by on skateboards, kids running past her, or loud noises. For a dog to be able to handle that much excitement 2 days after being pulled from the animal shelter is a feat in and of itself. Staci is a rock solid Canine Cellmate pup and we are soo happy to have her in our program!
Staci is available for adoption immediately and will be able to go to her forever home after graduation. Please fill out an adoption application at www.caninecellmates.org and email it to email@example.com.
Staci is part of the Canine CellMates program at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, GA that pairs inmates up with urgent dogs from the Fulton County Animal Shelter. Dogs must pass a temperament test and then go through a 10 week training course similar to the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program, established in 1989, is an American Kennel Club program to promote responsible dog ownership and to encourage the training of well-mannered dogs.The evaluation consists of ten objectives. All items must be completed satisfactorily or the team fails. Test items include: Accepting a friendly stranger. Sitting politely for petting. Allowing basic grooming procedures. Walking on a loose lead. Walking through a crowd. Sitting and lying down on command and staying in place. Coming when called. Reacting appropriately to another dog. Reacting appropriately to distractions. Calmly enduring supervised separation from the owner.
