Hi everyone, meet Anna – also known as Anna-banana!
“Annelise arrived at AARCS after suffering injuries to her hind limbs, both of which required major surgery. She has since recovered well and loves to run and play like a typical rambunctious adolescent puppy. Annelise is still working on her dog skills – because she can be excitable, she would get along best with another young, and tolerant dog. Her ideal home would have a younger, playful and well-socialized dog to keep her busy, or she would be okay as an only dog with continued slow socialization. She gets along with cats, and does well with her foster cat sister, although she is still learning not to chase them – and learning that not all cats want to play like dogs! She is still learning puppy manners and can be mouthy, so she should not go to a home with children. Anna is a young, high energy girl still learning lots about the world so she would do best with a home committed to ongoing training. She is crate and x-pen trained and does well when left alone during the daytime. Annelise is also very good on car rides. She loves playing frisbee, and playing fetch as well as chasing sticks into the river just far enough so that she doesn’t have to swim. She is a great hiker, and loves long walks in the winter and summertime.
Annelise has lots of energy and will need an active home, preferably with a yard. She has come miles with her training and is smart and eager to learn. She already knows many cues such as sit, down, stay, and drop – and would make a fantastic dog for sports such as rally or disc.
Because Anna was undersocialized as a puppy, she is sometimes fearful of new people and new situations, and should go to a patient and experienced dog-savvy home that is committed to continued work on her social skills and puppy training as well as help her gain confidence in the big world.”
