Available Dogs arrow ANNIE (23-058)

ANNIE (23-058) is a big, beautiful 6 year old. She came into GRREAT very overweight but she is happily on the weight loss road. Her forever family will need to continue her diet and exercise program so she can keep shedding those pounds in a healthy way. Annie knows basic commands such as sit, stay, down, and come, and she loves to please, so learning more commands should come easily. She is house trained and she will let you know when she needs to go out. Annie’s favorite activity is chasing the ball and she will bring it back, although she doesn’t really like to give it up.

She is good with other dogs and great with the foster family’s cat, but she would also do well as an only pet as long as she gets lots of attention. Annie is ok with polite children and she doesn’t jump up on people. She does need work on leash walking since she has a tendency to pull and she can put quite a bit of weight behind it. Annie would do better with a fenced yard so she has plenty of safe opportunities to run and play. She can be left alone for about 6 hours but is used to having someone around most of the time. Annie has had bad experiences with being crated so that is not recommended for her. She will sleep anywhere, but prefers to sleep in bed with her foster parents.
