MomsVa is hoping to help Oakley find a special owner who can help her with some behaviors that make her unsuitable for her current home. She is 2 years old and has been with her current family since she was 5 weeks old after they found her through a listing on CraigsList. She is spayed and current on all vaccinations.
In her current home, her mom says that she will sleep and sunbathe with the other dogs. She allows the other dogs to clean her and even growl a bit on occasion and there are no issues.
However, if the other dogs become agitated (barking or nervous/cowering), her mom writes that they have to “grab [Oakley] and control her.” Her mom goes on to say “we are now dealing with a pregnancy in our home and the stress of keeping all the dogs safe is too much” and “we need to find a home for her within the next 6 months.”
Oakley needs a home with an experienced dog owner or rescue group who understands what needs to be done to identify, manage and/or resolve her issues. Her owner had contacted several other rescues but none have been able to offer Oakley a space.
If you would like to help Oakley, please go to www.momsrescueva.org to submit an adoption questionnaire to MomsVA.
