Annie

 
Annie is believed to be a mix of Lab and Golden Retriever and about 7 years old.  Annie is completely house trained and always sleeps soundly through the night.  She weighs 66 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.  Because she was a stray, her forever home should be adult only or with kids over 14. Annie is still working on learning how to approach unknown people and animals while being walked in public. 

Annie is very fearful and we are working with a trainer to help her improve.  She is friendly with anyone who comes in the house and wants them to pet her.  She does better around people than other dogs.  When other dogs come to visit, she wants nothing to do with them.  She seems a little curious and a little fearful.  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 the car and out of the car; we are working with her to calm down during these times. Annie would probably do the best with someone who lives on either a big lot with a fence, or on a farm where she doesn’t need neighborhood walks for exercise.  Annie cannot be crated; we believe she may have been neglected and left in a cage for long periods of time. Annie is healthy and only takes a daily joint supplement for the beginning stages of arthritis. We recommend that her Forever Family continue to see a trainer if she will need to be walked in a neighborhood. If you are looking for a great companion to keep you company, Annie may be for you!

Annie is with GRREAT, a Golden Retriever rescue.  If you are interested in adopting her, you will need to go through GRREAT's approval process.  Please contact adoptions@grreat.org for more information about Annie or to get started on their approval process.
