** UPDATE FROM FOSTER MOM 2/1/2017 ** Annie is very sweet and gentle, loves to go running (about 5 miles) every day and go on long walks and hikes. She loves other dogs and people. She is loyal, sensitive and likes to be with us. She doesn't bark and likes the car. She can be skittish, and will run though. She doesn't like the kennel or to be enclosed. I have left her in my yard and house for a few hours with my two dogs where she mainly slept. She does needs training, but seems smart and wants to please. She is very calm when she is home with us.
Annie needs to be with a family that will exercise her and not leave her more then a few hours alone. I think she would do better with another dog in the family, but might not be necessary. At the dog park, she is friendly with everyone and likes to roam, but doesn't play that much. She sleeps through the night downstairs on the couch or dog bed. Comes up in the morning and politely wakes me up. Annie is a great dog that loves exercise and to be with her family.
Little Ann joined the L.R. family this afternoon from AFV in Lake Elsinore. She was found near a trail head by a good Samaritan, bleeding badly with significant puncture wounds on her chest, head and legs. She rushed her to her vet and had her cleaned up and the wounds tended to (at her own cost). The next day she turned her over to AFV who held her for 10 days. Nobody came looking for her so she is now on her way to a new life. She hoped right into the car without any hesitation and sat on the back seat watching the world go by.
Little Ann is about 55 pounds and could gain another five pounds or so. She will need altering once her wounds heal. The worst of the wounds seem to be on her chest with one good one on her leg. She is getting around just fine, but occasionally favors her front left (I think) leg. She has met all five of our girls and did wonderfully. She is a lover. She gives kisses to those who will tolerate it and corrects instantly if the other dog doesnít care for her loving. Little Ann will introduce herself to you by jumping up to give you a hug. She gently places her paws near your hips and pushes her head in to be pet. She has the sweetest face and soulful eyes that one canít help but to fall for. She met Meepers, the cat, and showed interest in chasing. When they were nose to nose, she was gentle. With time to get use to them and a bit of correcting, she may be just fine with them as well. Kids are a hit with her too. She will take loving from anyone. She also whined a bit and we let her outside and she did her business right away. Iím going to say she is housebroken or nearly so.
