Illness hit Abbie’s family and her family had to relegate her to the backyard. Abbie was very lonely and received little or no attention. The adults were focused on the needs of the ill family members and were unable to spend much time with her. Abbie had small children in her home but due to their allergies, she was unable to spend much time with them.
Abby injured her tail while outside. She was taken to the vet, but infection had set in and the vet decided the best course of treatment was to amputate it. She now has a little nub of a tail that she wags with enthusiasm when she is a happy girl.
Abbie is looking for a calm, quiet home with a soft spot for shepherds that have not been treated so well. She is anxious in new situations and her first instinct is to run, but once she trusts you, she will lean on you for assurance.
Abbie is good with other large dogs and soon we will test her with small dogs. She lived with a small dog in her former home, but the small dog stayed inside. While Abbie was happy to see her little pal, she wanted to play and give it kisses. The small dog was annoyed by Abbie’s friendly overtures and tended to ignore her. If you are looking to make a difference in the life of a dog that truly needs you, plesae come and visit Abbie. We want the rest of her life to be the BEST of her life.
