Available Dogs ABBY (17-009)
ABBY (17-009) is a sweet 6 year Golden Retriever/Cocker Spaniel mix. She is petite, weighing only 39 pounds and is as healthy as can be. Abby is fully house trained and knows sit, down, and come, and walks wonderfully on a leash. She is loving and easily attached to all humans, but is able to stay home alone for up to a full work day; greeting you with excitement when you return. Abby loves playing fetch, going outside for walks, and cuddling up next to her humans. She is great riding in cars, taking baths, and loves being brushed. She will follow you around the house and always wants to be by your side. Abby has been around kids in our neighborhood and is very gentle with them, but due to her anxiety may do better in a family with older kids. Abby has slight anxiety with certain noises, so she takes a low daily dose of Prozac which she will need to continue in her new home. She may bark at doorbells and when people approach the front door, but is friendly once they are inside. Although Abby is extremely loving towards all humans, she does not like other dogs or cats and would do best being the only dog in the household. We would not recommend Abby being off leash in the presence of other dogs without further training and she does best staying a safe distance away from other dogs while on walks. Abby is an affectionate pup that will make an excellent addition to the right family. She has warmed our hearts in the past few weeks and will surely warm yours as well!
