Color: White w/Black eyes & Right ear
Breed: English Setter mix(?)
Socialization/training: In-progress, w/many of today's training advances forgotten by the next day. After regaining her trust of humans, she now happily responds to “Annie” & “Come” but “Set”, “Stay” & “Easy” are a little more difficult for her.
Good with Children: Unknown, but expect absolutely no issues here.
Good with Dogs: Yes; Plays, romps, tug-of-war w/toys. Our Irish is a big boy and they enjoy each other's company immensely.
Good with Cats: No; fixates/stalks/chases. Prey driven. Extremely hard to break fixation, returning stat.
House trained: No; After eight years of reliving herself when/where ever the urge strikes, it now makes no difference to her where that is. Some success with the crate.
Crate trained: Yes
Leash trained: Progressing but pulls constantly. Many of today's advances are forgotten the next day, to start again.
Activity Level: High energy runner. Playful/anxious.
Fence: Hard Fence REQUIRED, minimum 8' high. Invisible has been ineffective.
Behavior: A chameleon as suits her needs at the time. Constantly seeks attention that may prove useful toward modifying undesired behavior.
Medical History: All available records on-file w/A&BESR (ANNIE 18-137).
10/18/2018 Blood Serum Chemistry Profile = All Normal except Slightly Low Sodium. 137 w/Normal Range of 138-160.
Foster Comments: Annie has apparently been a real Orphan most of her life; living by her wits, road kills and begging for food; mostly bourn-out in the behavior observed since we began fostering her on 13 Oct 2018. Very loving, but will need patience and consistency for training. She is so sweet and petite and a real sweetheart we will sorely miss.
Adoption Fee: $250.00
