found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
We think that Annee has probably lived most or all of her life as an outdoor dog, since everyday household sounds are frightening and strange to her. The first night at her foster home, she refused to come inside and slept on deck. Her love of people finally lured Annee indoors, since she obviously longs to be near her foster mom and follows her everywhere.
Annee is gradually becoming more comfortable in the house. She is learning her housetraining quickly and is getting better every day. She loves to be brushed and will sit calmly for hours while her foster mom brushes her. She knows “sit” and “no” and though she would like to counter surf, she is just a bit too short to be successful at it. Annee is a strong, speedy girl who loves to run in the yard and play fetch. Unlike many collies, she is great at retrieving the ball and politely returning it to her foster mom. She is also extremely quiet.
Annee is fine with her foster mom’s cats and she was recently introduced to children. She is very, very, gentle with little ones, even babies, and doesn’t jump up on them. She would also be great with older kids who would throw the ball for her.
While Annee is good with cats and kids, she is very frightened of other dogs. When she goes for a walk, she does fairly well until she sees another dog and then it is everything her foster mom can do to control her. She is not aggressive – just scared. There are other dogs at her foster home and Annee is gradually becoming more comfortable around them, even to the point of giving one kisses, but she would probably be most happy in a home where she is the only dog.
Annee’s ideal forever home would be a quiet one with a fenced yard for her to play in. She would make a perfect companion for a retired person or couple who could lavish her with attention and provide the quiet, stable environment that she needs. Visits from the grandchildren would be an added bonus, since Annee is such a loving, gentle girl. If you have a quiet home and the patience to help Annee settle in, she will repay you with cuddles, kisses and a lifetime of love.
