If you are looking for a 20 pound bundle of love that adores every person and every dog she meets, who is just about through with the puppy stage, then Aubrey is your girl. We estimate Aubrey to be approximately 1 to 1 years old and she appears to be a mix of Kerry Blue Terrier (minus the tail) and Miniature Schnauzer. She has a soft curly coat of the no shed/low shed type, which is blue-black, with a cute little white spot on her chest. She is spayed and up-to-date on all of her shots.
Aubrey has gotten along well with the fosters dog-savvy cat, but would most certainly chase a cat that runs from her, not to hurt it but to play with it. Speaking of play, she loves to chase balls, to the point of total exhaustion, and her new home will need to have a large supply of toys scattered about, which she will take full advantage of. She has no fear of the water and the first time her foster mother went into the pool, Aubrey jumped in with no prompting and swam right to her. If her new home has a pool, she will need to be pool-proofed to learn where the stairs are.
Aubrey is very food motivated and takes advantage of counter-surfing. She can stand just tall enough to reach over the edge of the counter, but will stop when the water spray bottle comes out. Aubrey cannot have free access to dog food or she will overeat and she currently eats twice a day (morning and evening). Aubrey knows basic commands and she also knows what the word no means, but she is still a bit of a puppy and will need continued guidance and training. She is house trained to a dog door. Aubrey loves all adults and children, but might be a bit overwhelming for a small child. She hasnt met a dog yet that she doesnt get along with, regardless of size or sex and she readily defers to alpha dogs. She is true to her terrier heritage, by being alert for strangers, but has not shown herself to be overly barky. Aubrey has a genetic eye disease, which requires eye drops applied twice a day and an eye ointment applied once a day. True to her "I want to please you" nature, she comes right to you when called and readily allows application of these medications.
Aubrey's' adoption fee is $250 each and she has been neutered, had full panel blood tests done, been microchipped and up to date on all of his shots. We do prefer that you be within driving distance of Phoenix to adopt one of our dogs. If the adoption doesn't work out for some reason with in the first thirty days, the adoption fee is refunded upon return of the dog. Our contract states that during the life of the dog, should something happen that you can not keep any of our dogs, the dog must be returned to VSGSR. Should a family member wish to adopt the dog, they would be given first priority. We are responsible for our dogs for their entire life. If interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Emailing is the best way to contact us as we are all volunteers.
