My Perfect Match:
-Is willing to take many trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. It takes a few controlled sessions to make the slow introduction and convince me I don;t have to be scared of you.
-You are a woman with no male signifigant other.
-Is experienced with reactive dogs. I do not have any "history" right now, and I need to keep it that way! That will be up to YOU to keep me and everyone else safe.
-Lives in a QUIET area – busy places are not for me! I need a direct and private access to the outdoors where I will not be running into strange humans or dogs.
-A safe, secure, and private yard is a huge bonus.
-Loves snuggly girls, watching movies, suntanning in the back yard, and SNACKS!
-Will continue with my training and take me on SAFE and SECLUDED walks/adventures only. I will not be able to walk down busy streets, go to dog parks, or other busy places.
-Patient with me on our first few meetings – I will be scared of you at first and you will need to make multiple trips to WAG before I understand that you are not a threat.
-Is pro-muzzle. I need to wear one in public to keep me and everyone else safe.
-Lives a quiet lifestyle with no visitors/social events at the house. I do not like visitors unless I have already built a relationship with them.
-Will love me forever no matter what!
UPDATE: A wonderful supporter has offered to pay for my First Mate food for the entire first year after my adoption! WOW!
-I arrived at WAG when my owners were arrested and I was seized. They never came back to get me so WAG has welcomed me to stay until I find a new home.
-I am VERY scared of men and would like a home with a woman.
- I can be a big leash puller so my new owner needs to be strong, but my leash manners are getting better every day!
-I like to go on hikes but I mostly like to be with you!
-I love to sleep in and cuddle on the couch with you for hours. I am a movie night and snacks kind of girl!
-You will need to meet me a few times before we are best friends, but warm chicken is a path to my heart!
-I like to sit on top of my favourite humans and give them hugs and kisses! In exchange, they can rub my belly for hours.
-I can spend hours napping in the sun.
-I LOVE to swim!! I am a mermaid.
-I am very smart and am extremely sensitive to other's emotions.
-I never wore a muzzle when I came to WAG and now I am fully muzzle trained.
I have had a very unstable start to my life. I was impounded by the RCMP when my previous caregivers were arrested. They never returned to pick me up and I was left at WAG.
It is believed that I was abused and neglected in my previous home, hence my fearfulness and anxiety. I have never had a stable home life, or proper training, both of which I need in my next home.
I am quite sad that I've found myself at a shelter but I have settled into the stable routine well and impressed the staff at how much I have grown in my time here!
I can't wait for a lady that will commit a lifetime of love to me.
