"The one who brings joy"
Abigail was a neglected and an unloved stray until someone finally took her to the city pound. The staff asked us to give her a chance because she needs to be an only pet and they wanted to make sure we would find the right home for her where she would be given a chance to thrive and be pampered. She is very deserving of this precious chance.

A little on the smaller side, but stocky and compact. Abigail is well proportioned and muscular. She sure is a little beauty. She's much cuter in person because her loving and outgoing personality is a large part of her charm.
Abby spent a few weeks at MPR shelter and did as best as you would hope considering that other dogs are not her cup-of-tea. She was stressed out when in her kennel next to other dogs, but a trooper. Once let outside of her kennel though, she immediately morphs into the sweetest and friendliest little dog when she is in a play room with people.
For Abigail's sake, we transferred her to a foster home recently with a single young woman who lives in an apartment in the city. We will update her bio once we have more information about her stay.
Abigail is a doll and has so many good traits. Her level of energy is just about perfect. She loves to play and romp, but also enjoys cuddling or lounging in the sun just as much. She is not timid or standoffish at all, but very sweet and eager to please. She's responsive and easy to control. She's a very happy dog and loves to bring a smile in peoples' faces. She will do everything she can to earn your love. She was a big time favorite at the shelter and we told her foster mom that she will probably be her favorite foster too.
Behavior with people:
She has a wonderful disposition with people and that's the reason we decided to welcome her in the program. She is a great representative of the breed. Stable, affectionate and well-balanced. Her love for people shines through her eyes when she sees you. She absolutely loves to be with humans but wont pester you if you are busy. She'll find something to amuse herself until you have time for her again. She's so irresistible that you wont be able to stay away from her very long.
Behavior with children:
Unknown for now. We will update her bio once we know her better. As of now, we see no reason to think she wouldn't do well in a home with kids. She seems tolerant and has a cute silly side. She is playful and outgoing, but doesn't jump up brutally and she is not boisterous.
Behavior with other dogs:
This is where Abigail might lose points, but hopefully a family with no other pets will not let her dislike of other dogs be a reason for not giving her a chance. She doesn't need doggy-friends to be happy. All she wants is a loving human family.
Abby should not be taken to a off-leash dog parks or be allowed loose outside. She needs a structured environment and responsible ownership. A home with a privacy fence would be ideal for her, but not a requirement. She does very good on walks and can be placed in a home without a fenced yard. In fact she might be barrier reactive, so she is likely not be the best candidate if you have a fenced-yard with neighbor dogs alongside. Although she doesn't love doggy friends, keep in mind that she is responsive to humans, eager to please and controllable.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown but she most likely has a high prey drive. A home with no cats is highly recommended.
She is smart and loves to learn tricks. Nothing makes this dog happier than to bring a smile in your face and to know she has done something good. In the same line of thought, she is sensitive to corrections and doesn't like disappointing her loved-ones.
Abigail is sooooo easy to love. She really is a great little dog who aims to please and adores cuddle time. She is easy to handle and very grateful. Give her a chance. you will not be disappointed!
