Annie found a good home
Annie was found by in July by her foster family. She is about 2 years old, liver and white, intact, has her shots and is heartworm negative. Annie is housebroken and crate trained, and has been taught sit and no. She likes to chew and will dig if bored or neglected. She is good with other dogs, jumps on people, and climbs on furniture/counters, which could be remedied with some obedience training.
An update from the foster home (11/99):
"We found Annie in our neighborhood as a stray in mid-July. She was
extremely skinny and hungry.
Annie is an absolutely sweet dog. She is starved for human
affection. We spend time with her and it's not enough. She will not
leave our sides when we are about the house with her or outside doing
chores. She also puts her paw on you for affection (in a gentle
shake-like manner). For example, she insists on watching me do the
dishes, so she sits behind me and suddenly her head is hanging because
she's fallen asleep sitting up, sometimes even standing.
Annie is very interested in birds and other flying things like bees,
flies, moths, butterflies. She chases them all and tries to catch
them. We took her to a field and she started rooting around in the
brush and then she started running large circles in the field. She
flushed out a dove and when if flew off she chased it. She runs
incredibly fast--faster than our Border Collie mix dog. Then she ran
back to the spot where she flushed the dove out and started running
more large circles in the general area, I guess to see what else she
could flush out. She is also very interested in small critters like
squirrels and we think she caught a roof rat (gross) in our backyard.
Annie tolerates other dogs. Our dogs are less than patient with her,
but she has never been the aggressor. She's never been aggressive
with us, or other people.
Annie has an incredible physique. She is solid muscle with barely
any fat and she's very chiseled looking. She eats a ton of food and
drinks a lot of water and has a lot of energy. She is most unruly
with the feet up on the counters when she's knows it's time to eat.
We have her crate trained. She is perfect in the crate and does not
make a sound or fuss from 1030 pm -7 am. She's been crate trained
since August. Annie likes routine. She knows when it is breakfast,
dinner time and bed time. We say "bedtime" and hold up a cookie and she runs
straight to her crate. In the morning when we let her out of the
crate, she runs straight to the back door, does her business and starts
dancing for breakfast.
She doesn't really bark. She lets out a few when other dogs come too
close to our backyard. She lets out an occasional howl when
emergency vehicles go by.
She's come a long way since we've had her. She used to put her head
and paw on my husband's lap and fall asleep, but now she's almost putting
3/4 of her body on him and falling asleep. It's really cute. She
also likes to rub her head on you affectionately and bury her head in
the crook of your elbow."
