Nelly Mary is the sweetest 4-year-old petite Ridgeback Shepherd-mix, and she weighs 55-60 pounds. She is the friendliest dog ever - loves everybody she meets and her tail doesn't stop wagging. She loves going for walks, is great in the car and has no problem jumping in the back of the SUV. She is housebroken and knows how to use a doggie door. Mary behaves well when left alone and is not destructive. She did great during her vet visit (giving kisses to the doctor) and also does great at the groomer’s.
This sweet girl is absolutely adorable and has a wonderful, cute personality that will put a smile on your face. She loves playing with toys - she flips them over, catches them, and she acts delighted at her own prowess. She is a medium-energy dog, loves running in the yard and chasing squirrels. She is not an escape artist and doesn't try to jump the fence. Mary is good with other dogs: she lives in a foster home with a few other dogs and does well with them, but has no interest in playing with any of them.
She does wonderful with visitors to the house and is wonderful meeting people on walks. In general she is quiet at home and will only bark in warning. Overall, she is an easygoing, very happy girl. She will benefit from some leash training with her future owner.
After years of suffering from a neglected ear infection, Mary was dumped at a shelter by her owners, who denied this poor girl the medical care she desperately needed. The infection had done irreparable damage to Mary's ear, and this sweet girl is now deaf in one ear. After we rescued Mary, she was finally able to undergo a TECA-BO (Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy) procedure. Unfortunately, Mary's ear was in such a state of disrepair that the only option for the vet was to remove the infected tissue entirely. Mary's entire ear canal and middle ear were removed, leaving only the ear flap. As a result, Mary is now deaf in one ear. We are devastated that the neglect by Mary's careless former owners has caused her irreparable harm.
Overall, Mary is a great dog - an easygoing, happy girl - and someone will be fortunate to have her in their life.
Mary is located in Los Angeles. If interested in her please submit an application on our website, www.angelsbarkrescue.org.
