More detail:

2022-04-13: They say age is only a number and I certainly agree. My name is Abbie Rose and while I may be 10 years old, I have the energy and personality of a dog half my age. I love to go on walks. My foster family takes me walking 2-3 miles a day and it is so much fun! Playing ball is the best! The more tennis balls the better! Toys are great too! I like to take them all out of the basket so I have lots to play with.

Before I was in a foster home, I was left alone for a very long time. My person died and no one came to look after me. I was on my own. Next, I found myself in a scary shelter with lots of other dogs. One day a wonderful lady came to the shelter and rescued me. She reassured me that I would be OK. Now, to be honest, because of my past, it takes me a while to get to know you and trust you. Once I relax, I want to know where you are all the time, but I promise, you don’t have to pet me. Just knowing you are close by is all I need.

I do like to talk. A lot. I announce everyone who comes to the door or even walks by. I like to hear my voice. I believe I am an excellent watch dog! I do get anxious if you leave me, (and I have medication for that!) but when you come home I am so happy that I greet you with lots of love and excitement and I go get a toy to show you!

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. My foster parents trust me and let me sleep in their room. I don’t chew on anything that is not mine. I do understand the word NO and respond well to correction. I know a few commands like sit, down, shake/paw, and would like to learn more. I even learned to use the dog door my first day in my foster home and would enjoy having one with my new family.

I feel healthy and happy now that the doctor has diagnosed my IBD. I eat special food and take a probiotic everyday. This keeps me at a healthy 80 lbs.

I am happy at my foster home and I get along with everyone. I am hoping for a family that will take care of me and understand me. My foster mom says I am lovable in a quirky way-
whatever that means! She told me I am a beautiful Red Fox Lab. I guess that is pretty special!

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. My foster mom says I am such a good girl and have come a long way. If I look like the girl for you, please contact your family rep. I will be here patiently waiting.
