Loving, Curious Dog Needs Forever Home
Greenlee is available for adoption through Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.
Greenlee is a female Lab/shepherd mix who is 10 months old and weighs approximately 35 pounds. Greenlee is spayed, up-to-date on all her shots, is crate-trained, as she sleeps in her crate at night.
She is also house-trained, with reminders to "pick a spot" when she is outside to do her business. Greenlee came to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue from a rural shelter where she was turned in as a "stray."
When she was rescued by Angels Rescue, she was around 6 months old, thin and very sick. Additionally, she was extremely afraid of everything and everyone. She has made great strides since being in her foster's home but still tends to lunge at other dogs on her walks and at adoptions events.
Greenlee's foster is working with her on small walks around their neighborhood, training her to respond to the command "watch me," so she won't be fearful or pay attention to other dogs she meets.
Greenlee gets along well with her foster's smaller "alpha" female when they are outside in the yard, and is best pals with their male dog - inside and outside.
Greenlee may have been attacked or bullied by other dogs as a stray, before being brought into the shelter, and she is working hard to overcome those fears which come out in her aggressions toward other animals she doesn't know and trust.
Greenlee loves to be outside in the yard playing with her toys or chasing balls. One thing this baby requires is lots of toys and balls to play with, as she loves to have one in her mouth at all times.
She also loves to play and hang out with her best buddy, a male Airedale, but she also loves to just sleep at the feet of her foster mom and dad in the den.
This dog adores her foster's children, especially their 8-year old child and would do well with older children who will play ball with her.
She is curious of all things, sweet, loving and willing to learn but needs to have a family who will provide her security, love, training and exercise. As a young pup, she has energy to burn and loves the outdoors, so she will also need a fenced-in yard and a gate to keep her inside.
Most of all, she needs a secure place in the heart and home of a forever family so she can continue to learn that the world is not such a scary place to be.
