    Revel – “to take great delight in”

    This blue-eyed beauty arrived at AARCS from northern Manitoba. Never having lived in a home, she was very shy and timid with people but has blossomed in her foster home and has come to trust her humans. Her ideal furever family will understand that continuing to build this trust with her will have great rewards. Revel loves hanging out with people she knows and, although shy at first with new folks, can be won over with treats and a calm presence.

    Revel is still a pup and loves to play, especially with other dogs. She has lots of energy and will need a home with another dog that loves to play and can give her confidence to be her best self. She has discovered a love of toys and a house with lots of chew toys to keep her busy would be ideal. She does enjoy the occasional shoe, but her foster mom sees this as a bonus because it helps train the teenagers to pick up their stuff. When Revel has tuckered herself out playing, she channels her inner “lap dog” and crawls up to give her humans kisses.

    Revel is very smart, works well for treats, and is house-trained. She has been working with her foster family to overcome her shyness with leashes. She is making great progress and her new home will need to continue this with her. A fenced backyard is a must so she can get her exercise until she is comfortable walking on leash. Revel sleeps quietly in a crate overnight and enjoys having a quiet “den” to go to for naps.

    If you think you could give this sweet girl the patient, loving home she deserves, apply to meet her today!
