Annabelle and her babies came to us from a high kill shelter. She gave birth to three boys and one girl.
Leash Manners – Annabelle is a strong, energetic dog and she enjoys going for walks
Socialization - Per Annabelle's previous foster, she is okay with most dogs. She would need to be properly introduced to the other dog.
Energy Level and Exercise – Annabelle is an active dog. She loves to run around in the yard and go on walks.
Daily Structure and Schedule – At the shelter, we feed the dogs twice a day. This is what Annabelle is used to. She would need to be properly introduced to new food. We feel she would easily adjust to a new feeding schedule.
Confidence Level – Annabelle is a friendly dog. She is slightly apprehensive about men and she would need to be properly introduced so that she is familiar with the men in the home. She prefers females because she feels confident around them and bonds with them the most.
Obedience Training – Annabelle knows basic commands and listens well. She is crate and house trained. Like many dogs, she will let you know when she needs to go out.Ideal Home - An ideal home for Annabelle would be one with an active family. She bonds best with women. If there are men in the household, she would need to be introduced. It will take patience, but she eventually gets used to the men she is around. She does not need to have another canine companion as she gets a lot of enjoyment from being around her people. However, if the potential family has another dog, Annabelle would need to be introduced to them to ensure that everyone gets along. We suggest a home with older/no children to be on the safe side. She previously belonged to a family who used her as a hog dog - so whoever adopts her cannot own pigs.
Annabelle is a very loving dog and all she wants is love and hugs! She did her job as a mom very well and is ready now for a home of her own and to be loved.
Annabelle is heartworm positive and at Pet Rescue by Judy we use the slow kill method. Literature will be supplied at the time of adoption, along with 6 months of heartworm prevention.
