Hi there, my name is Annie! A cute name for a cute dog.

I have pawesome listening skills. If my foster people want me off the furniture, I’ll move from a simple voice or hand command. They will point to the floor and that’s my cue to boogie out of there! I’m also great with my toys! My humans can easily take away my toys and I won’t argue. They’ll ask me to “drop it” and I oblige! I don’t mind sharing my toys with other animals at all. The more that are playing with me, the merrier, I think! I love tug-of-war and running around with dogs of all sizes. I’m not sure about those cat things though, I’ve never actually met one.

I don’t mind when my foster people check inside my mouth or touch me on my body. I’m not usually fussy! Most of the time, I love to be hugged and snuggled! Doesn’t matter if it’s by human or animals – I’ll take cuddles where I can get ‘em. I also enjoy being groomed, brushed and bathed. Sometimes I’ll flinch when the humans are about to pet me, especially men (they make me a bit nervous sometimes). On the other hand, I love kids. They’re so much fun to play with! I let them touch me and I love snuggling with them. Strangers aren’t too bad, I usually like them, but sometimes it takes me a bit of time to warm up to the idea of them petting me. Sometimes I’ll bark at them and cower when new people approach me. But when I know the humans, man do I have a great time. I love my foster family’s friends. When I’m familiar with you, I’ll let you pet me no problem!

Good news – I’m as healthy as can be. I’m a crate-trained gal and don’t mind it in there! I’ll even go in there to take a break and chill. I stay in my crate overnight and will hang out in there for about 3 hours during the day while the humans are away. My forever family will need to have a crate for me, or a gated area when I’m home alone until I get used to the space. I’m working on being fully housed-trained as I still have some accidents – I’ll get there! I’m getting better as the days go on though! 

So, here’s the thing – I have been known to be a little destructive in the past. When I’m left alone, I tend to get a little anxious and I’ve chewed a few things. This is why crating is a good idea to keep me, and your shoes, safe!  Man do I love to eat! I’m not picky in the slightest. I have shown some resource guarding with other animals being too close when I’m eating though. It’s probably best to let me eat in a secure space like my crate so that I don’t have to feel afraid of someone taking my precious food away.  

Walks are so groovy, I really dig them! I like them so much that I sometimes pull on my leash a bit. I also enjoy car rides – no matter where we’re going! I haven’t been on many car rides yet, but man are they fun! I do okay at the vet – it’s not my cup of tea, but I’ll tolerate it there. I’m good at that obedience thing. I respond to “sit” and “come”. 

In a nutshell, I’m as sweet as can be. I might be a little nervous at first, but I just need a little bit of time to warm up. I just adore a good snuggle once I know you’re cool. I love to munch on nyla bones and bully sticks – what can I say, I’ve got good taste. I’m a lap dog through and through. Once I’m comfortable with you, I’ll sit in your lap and cuddle for eons. Running around and being silly in the yard is always a great time. I’d make a great addition to your house if you have kids because I love them! I’ve been told I have a very sweet disposition. I’m such a catch. Please consider adding me to your family if you think I’m a good match for you.  

Medical Note: Annie was given Pro Heart 12 on March 20, 2023 (this medication protects against heartworm disease for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick prevention until February 2024. She is currently receiving Nexguard monthly. For March 2024, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing preventative treatment.
