Description: A medium sized dog with graceful legs and an adorable face and the most conspicuous long ears that stand out on either side of her head. She has the frosty face of an older dog and a long tail and a slender build.
Personality: Abby is the most gentle, amenable, easy going sweetheart. She likes affection and will follow you around the yard. She comes when she is called. She is housebroken. She doesn't need a lot of exercise because of her age, but she does enjoy a walk. She likes to be where you are. She just wants a comfortable clean place to live without too much chaos. She has a good appetite and she desires a family to love her.
I have never heard her bark. She is quiet and good-natured. She does great with my two small children and three other dogs in the house. She just goes with the flow. She is a treasure for the person who prefers a less active dog. She deserves to live out her last years in comfort. She has enough pep in her to see her through several more years. Her health is generally quite good. She has a little bit of arthritis, but I have seen her run and jump a little!
Animal History: Abby and her dog pack came from Pittsboro from a very loving beautiful home. Their owners went in to assisted care separately but within a year of one another and they were very concerned that their precious dogs go to good homes. This was a very hard transition for humans and dogs alike, but we can make it better for them by giving them the good homes they deserve and that their owners so desired for them!
