found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Bonny gets along with other dogs, cats, kids, and all people. But, she really wants one person to bond with. She is learning that it is okay to play with the dogs and with people. It's as if she has been told all of her life that she can't play with other dogs or people, and is now just beginning to learn that it's okay and it's FUN. It just makes me smile when she goes into her play poses and play lunges around Plato, our stoic Shepherd mix. I think she would be happy as an "only dog", but taking her out to the dog park to continue to re-learn the natural tendencies of play would be a very good thing for her.
Bonny would be a wonderful life companion to anyone who would love to have a dog with "eyes only for them", and likes to take their dog everywhere they go, as well as to someone who spends a lot of time at home. Other winning traits: I've fostered her for two weeks, and I have not seen any bad habits, any bad behaviors, any "uh-oh's". She doesn't have an aggressive or dominant-assertive bone in her body. She is an excellent dog in the house, and does not need a huge yard to work off her energy, like many border collies and BC mixes do. She has little to no prey drive or chase instinct, and whether she is with dogs, horses, or sees deer and turkey in the pasture, she is just not interested in chasing, barking, or running after them. She walks politely on a leash. She comes when called every time, and somewhere along the line she learned to come with a whistle cue.
If you are looking for a gentle, sweet, loving companion who will bond to you, and who has the quiet and easy temperament to go anywhere with you, to spend lots of time just hanging out with you no matter what you are doing, Bonny is for you. Bonny is spayed, is up-to-date with vaccinations, has been heartworm-tested, is on heartworm preventative, and has been treated with Frontline Plus (as a precaution...she did not have any parasites when she arrived in rescue). Her foster home is near Cookeville, TN. Bonnie will be at Agri-Feed in Knoxville on December 15th.
