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 about 9 years old. Annie is completely house trained and always sleeps soundly through the night. She weighs 72 lbs. Annie is extremely affectionate and loves attention. Although she knows commands like sit, down and give me your paw, she can be quite stubborn when you tell her to come if she is busy sniffing around. She enjoys being brushed, having her belly rubbed, and cuddles! Annie likes to take walks so that she can sniff everything in sight. She has a medium energy level and naps often on the couch. Because she was a stray, her forever home should not have any children under the age of 14. Annie is still learning how to approach other dogs while being walked in public. Currently she is fearful, but we have been working with a trainer and are seeing lots of improvements. She is friendly with everyone who comes into the house and she is good with other dogs when they visit; it just takes time for her to warm up to 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. She responds well to positive reinforcement and is making steady progress. Annie would do the best with someone who has a fenced in yard. Annie is healthy and only takes a daily supplement to help her joints. We recommend that her Forever Family continue to see a trainer if she will need to be walked in a neighborhood where lots of other dogs are being walked. If you are looking for a loving and loyal companion to keep you company, Annie may be for you!
