Dog Of The Month

Meet Abbie

Abbie is a unique dog. As you can see, she is absolutely gorgeous! She has had some rough years, though. We took her from the Orange County Shelter about two years ago where she was about to be killed for biting one of the shelter workers. But we always have to give them a break when they are in such a scary place like a county shelter. So Abbie came to live with us here at the rescue. It turns out, she had some early onset arthritis, which may explain her tendency to lash out when she is touched in a sensitive area. We are looking for a family for Abbie who will understand her limitations. She does not like to be touched, and will always let us know when she has had enough on her walks. She would like a home with no children or other pets. She will require a home with a special kind of person who will respect her space when she asks for it. Abbie has lived in a kennel most of her life, so if you are a patient person who can give Abbie a home of her own, please come meet her1.
