The one thing that is common in all dogs who have been mistreated is their power to forgive, and to learn to love and trust despite past trauma.
Phoebe arrived at Animatch recently from a Northern Community; a rescuer believed that she had injuries that required veterinary care. Abuse was suspected. Thank goodness for people who act. As it turns out, Phoebe has no permanent damage – not physical in any case. She is not “just a dog”, she is a living, breathing, wonderful creature who deserved so much more than the hand she was dealt.
Now she needs to meet the family of her dreams. The people who will love her as much in 10 or 15 years as the day they bring her home. They ought to give her the time to adjust to her new life and gain some trust. Whoever adopts her must realize that her confidence needs a boost.
Phoebe gets along with other dogs and might do well with a well-balanced canine to show her the ropes. At only 10 months old, she has many years to put her past behind her and enjoy the perks of being a caring family’s dog.
Phoebe is not suited to apartment or condo living as she likes the sound of her own voice. She may require a refresher in toilet training but she is a smart pup who is so willing to please. She would thrive with a family who are not gone all day.
If you feel you can guide Phoebe through the next chapter of her life, please fill in an Application Form.
