    Story

    Hello! My name is Imani, and I’m sweet as pie.

    “I came from a home with 15 dogs, and while my other brothers and sisters seem to have adjusted well, I’m still very shy and closed off. I love attention from people (on my terms), and I need a safe space in the house to retreat to when I’m frightened. I may be house trained, but that’s the only training I have! I’m very willing to work on it though, as long as you have treats to feed me.

    My favourite things to do are destroying toys (they’re not as fun unless I can pull ALLLLL the stuffing out) and playing with my smaller foster sister. I’ll need a lot of work to become a confident dog, and a friend in the house with me would be helpful! I’m not currently walking on leash, so a home with a fenced in back yard would be best! My foster mum tells me I’m still learning how to be a dog, whatever that means. But she sure shows me lots of love! I prefer women over men, you see – they aren’t as scary.

    I learn quickly and I have a beautiful voice that I will share with you when I feel comfortable. While I will need a lot of training and positive reinforcement, I will also be a loyal and loving companion to whomever chooses me.”

    If you’re looking for a sweet pup to open up her heart to you, pick me today!

      Does this Animal have Special Needs?
      Yes, Behavioral Needs – Imani is a very fearful and shy dog, who will need a great deal of confidence building to help her continue coming out of her shell. She doesn’t have any training, so she will need a lot of work.
