More detail:

2021-12-31: They say age is only a number and I certainly agree. My name is Abbie Rose and while I may technically be 10 years old I have the energy and personality of a dog half my age. My foster mom thinks I might be a Red Fox Lab, apparently I look a lot like the pictures. I love to go on walks, my foster family takes me walking everyday and it is so much fun. Before I was in my foster home, I was left alone for a very long time without food, so I am just trying to regain my shapely figure, and learn to trust again. My person died and no one came to look after me and I was on my own. Next, I went to a scary shelter with lots of other dogs. I was adopted, but somehow I was let out and found myself at the scary shelter again. The family did not come back for me, I do not know what happened. One day a wonderful lady came to the shelter and rescued me. We drove a long way and luckily a really nice young man was with her and they reassured me that I would be OK.

I do like to talk a lot. I announce everyone who comes to the door or even might be walking by. I do like to hear my voice.
My first foster family took me to a baseball game. It was great! I got to sing along to the music. I did so good they gave me a hotdog. I just wish I could have been on the field chasing that ball! My foster Mom let me have the treat cause, I needed/ to gain a few pounds. Now that the specialist has diagnosed IBD and I have special food and probiotics I feel and look so much better.

Being a dog of maturity, I consider myself to have manners. I am house trained and know to go outside. At night if you want me to, I will sleep in a crate, and I don’t make a peep, I am in my foster parents’ bedroom all night. I don’t chew on anything that I should not. I do know a few commands like sit, down, shake/paw and would like to learn more. I do understand the word ‘NO’ and respond well to correction. I even learned how to use the dog door my first day in my new foster home.

I love to play ball. The more tennis balls the better! I also like toys. I like to take them all out of the basket, so I have lots to play with. Even though I currently have a foster brother and sister, I think I prefer being the one and only, but I know how to live with others. I am happy to meet all the dogs on my walks, and big and small people, too. I also lived with two cats in my first foster home. I pride myself on getting along with everyone, even those pesky cats who hissed at me and tried to make me mad. I know better than to let one of them take a swipe at me.

I am not super picky about my forever home. I get along with everyone, I just want a family that will take care of me so that I can take care of you. If I look like the girl for you, please contact your family rep. I will be here patiently waiting for you.
