What is my personality like? Annabelle is a love bug. She is so sweet and friendly, although nervous and over food the worst of her personality comes out.
Who I am seeking: Annabelle needs an only dog home but for only one reason - you must feed Annabelle separately. She's very food aggressive with other dogs. If you can and will control the dogs during feeding, for instance putting them in separate rooms or put the other dog(s) into their own personal spaces, you are fine. You can't even fix food around Annabelle and other dogs. Humans can do anything they please with her food, treats and bowl but not another dog. No no keep your paws and your muzzle to yourself. It may have something to do with her being about 2/3 of her normal body weight when she came to us. Never knowing if your going to get a next meal or when isn't a confidence builder.
Annabelle has been passed around several times in her life and we are committed to finding her very last and forever home. In the meantime, she is both virtually adoptable as we help her work through many medical problems. We're all still hoping one day the perfect home will come for Annabelle.
Annabelle knows how to sit, and loves to work for treats. Annabelle has been xrayed and has been confirmed with hip dysplasia but you would be hard pressed to tell when you see her playing in the fields. She runs with the best of them. However, because of the hips a home without stairs would be her best bet.
Annabelle is heart worm positive. She is on what is called slow kill which is simply her monthly heartworm preventative. It must be an ivermectin based product (Triheart, Heartguard or Iverhart Max). We're hoping that she will test negative in the next year.
Annabelle has a BFF named Halibut that she has bonded to and he has been a huge confidence builder for her
Our best case scenario? That someone sees that two dogs are not more trouble than one even if they are both special needs. Halibut and Annabelle share everything except food and who knows, maybe one day Annabelle will even be willing to do that. They play and romp and keep each other company, Both most likely have shortened lives than other dogs so since they’ve already found each other, perhaps they can both find a place in your heart. We’d love to see them go together
How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
