These wonderful people helped a neighbor by taking in their "puppy", as neighbors were moving and couldn't or wouldn't take it. SUPER NICE PEOPLE, but just said "yes" for the wrong reason.The people who have the dog, also have 3 small children...the puppy has now grown into a BIG puppy, and they were not prepared to take this on. They have tried working with a trainer at Petsmart, and walk her, bring her to doggy parks etc....BUT the problem remains, they cannot control her. (They have never been dog owners before, so this has been a terrible situation for them).
The dog is nervous around people at first, but after a awhile he is fine. Unfortunately, the dog has had bad encounters with other large dogs at the dog park, that were not so nice, so now she is not good with them with out proper introduction. She has snapped 2 times at people (Which I believe was in play, as it didn't break skin), but now that has thrown them off the edge ..
They have 3 little children to worry and think about. The mother LOVES the dog, the dad and family members tell her to "Get rid of it and care for your children".
Heres what I know about the dog:
Collie mix. (I think maybe Anatolian too??)
female, 1 year , spayed and UTD on vaccines.
She is friendly to people she knows. scared of strangers. she need time to warm-up
She has the history of snapping at 2 people.
she is better for a family that has no kids and someone who is good at training and having control.
she also likes to play ball, frisbee.
she knows sit command.
Very smart and just needs someone able to control and teach her...shes a PUPPY!
Her adoption fee is set at $200.00 If interested in her, PLEASE go to our website at www.azrain.org and complete a application for her.
