My name is Aisen!
I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Hello there! My name is AISEN and I am a 5 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix. I've been through alot and will need an experienced, loving, patient adopter who knows about feral dogs. For years I was on my own, had puppies and was then rescued. I'm doing great learning how to be a companion but I still need to learn more about trusting humans again. I've come a long way in my foster home and each day I am learning more and more. All of my pups have been adopted so now it is my turn. I'm a good girl who just needs to be given a chance with an experienced, loving, patient adopter. Could it be you?
I am up to date on my vaccinations, spayed, wormed and microchipped. I like other dogs, I've never really been around cats so it's still a mystery how I would do with them and a home with older children would be best.
My adoption fee is $150.00. If you are interested in me, please call 859-490-0486 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Homeward Bound has adoption events in the Lexington, KY and Richmond, KY areas almost every weekend. Please feel free to visit us on FaceBook at Homeward Bound Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation for current adoption event news as well as updates on our available pets.
BIOGRAPHY: Aisen was a feral (wild) dog living outside a factory in London, Kentucky. Born in the wild, she had no social interaction with humans. Factory workers left food scraps outside for her until the factory owners decided to have her shot. A local animal rescue organization, Homeward Bound Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation, trapped her to save her from being killed. Aisen arrived at the rescue frightened, unsocialized and missing much of her fur from mange. She was scared of the kennel environment and was transferred to World Animal Foundation for rehabilitation. Aisen arrived terrified of humans and hid under a bed for several days, refusing to eat or even move. She trembled and defecated if anyone came close to her. After several days she began to come out of hiding for food and water at night when no one was around. After several weeks she slowly began to take treats from humans. After a month she gained the courage to go outside during the day and slowly began interacting with other dogs. Aisen is now house broken, plays with other dogs and follows humans around. She begs for treats and now plays with toys. She will let her caretakers touch her, but is still shy and cautious. She is terrified of a leash but volunteers are slowly working to leash train her. She needs a patient family willing to continue to work with her. Whoever adopts her will need to understand that she'll probably start off shy and timid. She's very gentle, likes other dogs and does well with cats. Aisen is about 5 years old, spayed, wormed, current on vaccines and microchipped. Her hair is almost all grown back in and is now soft and shiny. Aisen is a special dog who deserves to live. She is very low maintenance and will require a fenced yard and other dogs to interact with.
