What is my personality like? Annabelle is a love bug. She is so sweet and friendly, although nervous and over food the worst of her personality comes out although that has improved dramatically over the time she has been with us.
Who I am seeking: Annabelle has been passed around several times in her life and we are committed to finding her very last and forever home. In the meantime, she is also virtually adoptable as we help her work through many medical problems. We're all still hoping one day the perfect home will come for Annabelle. She's is that loving and affectionate to her people.
Annabelle knows how to sit, and loves to work for treats. She also loves belly rubs and loves to roll over for them from our caregivers.
Annabelle has been xrayed and has been confirmed with hip dysplasia but you would be hard pressed to tell when you see her playing in the fields. She runs with the best of them. However, because of the hips a home without stairs would be her best bet.
Annabelle was heart worm positive. We have cleared her with what is called slow kill which is simply her monthly heartworm preventative. It must be an ivermectin based product (Triheart, Heartguard or Iverhart Max). She must remain on this.
Annabelle has a BFF named Halibut that she has bonded to and he has been a huge confidence builder for her. He is a schnauzer mastiff mix. Annabelle is a big girl and likes her boys big, too. She also loved an anatolian shepherd we had that got adopted. big girl - big boys. do you have a big boy looking for buddy?
Nobody is perfect and neither is our big, fluffy girl. What's the bad? No fence can hold her - she digs out. And she has food aggression with other dogs.
Annabelle needs fed separately. She's very food aggressive with other dogs. If you can and will control the dogs during feeding, for instance putting them in separate rooms or put the other dog(s) into their own personal spaces like a crate, you are fine. We don't even fix food around Annabelle and other dogs. Humans can do anything they please with her food, treats and bowl but not another dog. It may have something to do with her being about 2/3 of her normal body weight when she came to us. Never knowing if you're going to get a next meal or when isn't a confidence builder. She has come a long way now that she knows that meals are regular.
Our best case scenario? That someone sees that Annabelle is a love in spite of her food issues
How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
