Dolly / F / 2 yrs. / 45 lbs / Catahoula
Meet Dolly! Dolly has been with our rescue for over 6 months now and dreams of finding a family to call her own. She is a sweet and gentle girl, but also timid and shy. Dolly is looking for a special family that can be gentle with her and has the kindness and patience needed to build her confidence. A home with another friendly and well-adjusted dog would be a huge benefit to Dolly.
Given the time and space she needs to warm up, Dolly is a loving and affectionate girl. She loves to be by her foster mum’s side and will gaze adoringly at her until she receives a pet. When her foster mum comes home from work, Dolly will do a goofy prance towards her with ears propped outward, as if to say “Hi! I missed you!”
Dolly would prefer a female only home, or a home where a woman is one of her primary caregivers, because she is especially nervous of men. She is timid around children as well, but with time and patience, she does gains confidence and trust. A home with no kids or older, calmer children is best.
Dolly is great around calm, gentle and friendly dogs. Dolly is not cat tested, but has never shown any interest in chasing other small animals like squirrels.
She is low to medium energy and looooves walks and playing outside in the yard. Dolly is great on the leash, walking calmly at your side. If something startles her she may pull a little to get away. Because of this, Dolly would prefer a family that lives in a quieter country or suburban neighbourhood.
Dolly is crate and house trained. She is a quiet girl and only barks with excitement when her foster mum comes home. She has wonderful manners and is working on her basic commands. So far she knows sit and stay.
Dolly has come a long way since her arrival into our rescue and this beautiful girl has loads of potential yet to be unlocked! She would make wonderful forever friend, and just needs a second chance.
Dolly’s adoption fee is $450. To learn more about our adoption fees and process, please visit our FAQs at http://www.fetchandreleash.ca/faq/.
