“Some lucky person will get to have Abby,” states her caregiver and foster mom! Can you imagine a life with your favorite companion who loves hugs, riding in the car, grooming, playing with toys, rarely barks, chews on appropriate toys, loves treats, happily wags her tail to see you, sleeps through the night and waits for her food while prayers of blessings are given! What’s not to love about that!
Abby came to GRRMF with hopes of being healed and finding her forever home. It appears that Abby was hit by a car; a caring veterinarian rescued Abby from a shelter and GRRMF raised all paws to take good care of this young pup until she is ready for a loving new home. Fortunately, her injuries do not require surgery but the diagnoses reflected subluxation (a partial separation of the joint) of the left leg; it was further noted that Abby was using her leg well and this condition is manageable. Abby’s take home instructions requires ten weeks of rest, without jumping, running or goofy puppy stuff – what a tough restriction for such a young girl.
Given her harrowing experience, Abby is working on gaining confidence around new people and loud noises from trucks and other sounds that might startle her. Since she has to lay low for awhile, her foster mom is keeping her busy working on some sit, stay and shake commands. Abby also enjoys car rides, sniffing all the wonderful smells in the yard, watching the birds fly and squirrels scamper around searching for food while she lounges on the sun warmed deck.
Being a youngster, Abby will need some patience and training on leash walking, as well as other manners and house rules. This easy going girl, who is happy and willing to please, is off to a great start. For now, she needs to rest and recuperate from her accident. When the time is appropriate, Abby will be properly introduced to children, other dogs and cats.
Abby is a special girl and a joy to be around. Young and ready for some fun when she is better, she will be looking for a loving family who has the time and patience to teach her and enjoy the love she so willingly shares. Abby may not be an olympic athlete who is able to run long distances, jump and hike difficult trails but she will be a constant companion to take leisurely walks with, join in family activities and cuddle up with at night. All she really wants to do is be with you!
