10 Apr Abby needs a loving family!!
Abby is a marvelous mystery multi-mix of maybe Bull Terrier, Shepherd, Pit Bull, and something with genes for black spots because she has adorable black spotted ears! Where on earth do you think those come from? Your guess is as good as ours. The vet thinks she is about 4 or 5 years old. When first rescued by SPOT, she was obviously neglected, malnourished and anemic. After veterinary care, and great, loving foster care she is healthy, sassy and ready for a new loving home where she can be the best friend forever. Abby has so many great traits! She is fully house trained, not destructive when left alone, and she sleeps through the night either on the floor in your bedroom, or in her crate when she chooses to go into it. She is totally crate-trained so you can crate her if/when needed. She loves belly rubs, playing with her squeaky toys, going for car rides, and hanging-out on the patio. She will “sit” for a treat, especially if it is cheese! She’s been great with all the people she’s met. Abby has reduced vision in one eye and reduced hearing on that side too, but it doesn’t bother her or affect her at all. She regularly shows her cute, charming, affectionate attitude with people. She LOVES to play fetch with dog toys, so older children would be good fetch companions for her. She is not a high-energy girl, –leisurely walks around the block are fine with her. Overall, we’d say she’s a mellow lady. Her foster parents can tell you more about her. Her former life probably didn’t offer her much attention, protection, care or nurturing, so Abby likely felt that she always had to be on alert and anxious about everything. But with patience, time and love from people who care about her and want her to feel safe, trusting and confident, she is becoming a self-assured dog who will be a wonderful family companion. When around other dogs she can still sometimes be grouchy, but she is easily corrected and reassured when you convey to her that you are not going to let anything bad happen to her, and that she is safe with you. You can catch her in action in video on the SPOT website. Maybe she’s a match for your family?
