Available Dogs ANNIE (16-052)
ANNIE (16-052) came to GRREAT as a stray. She is believed to be a mix of Lab and Golden Retriever and is about 10 years old. Annie is completely house trained and always sleeps soundly through the night. She weighs about 70 lbs and is very strong. Annie is extremely affectionate and loves attention. Although she knows commands like sit, lay down, and give me your paw, she can be quite stubborn when you tell her to come while she is busy sniffing around. She enjoys being brushed, having her belly rubbed, and getting massages. Annie likes to take walks so that she can sniff everything in sight or go for a quick swim in a river. We are working with her to walk better on a leash and she is making lots of improvements. Annie has become more confident on her walks and now she doesn’t react to passersby. She may bark a little as dogs pass by but quickly loses interest and goes on. Because she was a stray, her forever home should be adult only or with kids over 14. She is friendly with anyone who comes in the house and wants them to pet her, and she is fine with other dogs once she gets to know them. We don’t know how Annie is with cats, but she will try to chase them if she is out on a leash being walked. Annie likes car rides although she does get anxious when getting into and out of the car; we are working with her to calm down during these times. Annie would probably do best with someone who lives on a big fenced lot or on a farm. Since we have moved out to a more rural place, Annie has thrived and her sweet personality shines. Annie is healthy and only takes a daily joint supplement for the beginning stages of arthritis. If you are looking for a great companion to keep you company, Annie may be for you!
