Linda originally ended up at Fulton County Animal Control in February 2016. She was a frightened little dog and the staff made it their mission to socialize her. After a few weeks, Linda was a staff favorite! She was adopted from Fulton in April 2016, only to come back as a stray, hit by a car in 3 weeks later. Poor Linda was in terrible shape and a lot of pain. We rushed her to Dr. Leathers for evaluation. Dr. L and the staff stayed late to amputate Lindas leg. Her bone was exposed and it had been too long so there was no way to save the leg. Linda is healing in foster care.
Linda was a timid girl when she first came to Fulton County. The staff worked with her and eventually she became the happy-go-lucky office dog. Her adopters failed her miserably. Linda is now an adorable tri-pod and her foster mom has been working on socialization with her once again to show Linda that not all people will fail her. She can be a little shy or fearful around new people, but once she warms up to you, she is very loving and enjoys being right beside you. Linda is the type that follows you around the house. She is eager for affection and reassurance. Linda never has accidents in the house even when left for prolonged periods of time and is fairly low energy. She enjoys the quiet time with a treat or toy and is content with a few laps around the yard for exercise. Linda is looking for her forever home this time around. She has been through enough and deserves to be spoiled by the love of a family.
Our adoption fee is $250. All dogs are current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, on heartworm prevention, and are fed top of the line grain-free food.
