    “Hello! I am Miranda, a seven-year-old (going on 8 years old) fuddy-duddy with a heart of pure gold. My favourite thing is relaxing close to my foster family, on my bed, or just any bare spot of floor. I love treats, walks, cuddles, and being as close to my humans as possible!” — xo Miranda

    Miranda came into AARCS’ care after she was rescued in January of 2017. She was welcomed with open arms into her current foster home and has been gaining confidence and doggy socialization skills ever since. She is shy at first, but when plied with love and treats, she will warm up quickly, but be careful, Miranda steals the heart of everyone she meets! She is especially fond of food and will do almost anything for it! She has some anxious behaviours which are being managed with a combination of behaviour training/enrichment and medication, which has improved her attitude significantly. We believe that Miranda would thrive in a home where someone is (or can take her with them) as most of her anxiety stems from being left alone. She is very nervous when in a car, but loves to go for walks and spending time outdoors. Miranda has had some necessary dental-work which resulted in removing 23 of her teeth! Remember how much she loves food though? Yep, she still munches away on her food and doesn’t seem to be bothered at all by her lack of chompers!

    Miranda is a senior girl, so she also has a bit of arthritis, which makes her a little achy when she’s been lying down for a while. A little stretching goes a long way and then she’s ready to get up and go! There is no doubt that her best feature is the love she will share with you, Miranda will not rest until she has charmed the world with her soft demeanor and sweet toothless grin.

      Miranda has anxiety that is managed partially through medication, and partially through behaviour training. She is also missing most of her teeth, and has a bit of arthritis which causes her some achy-ness.
