Edwina is healthy spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and ready for adoption. We are currently tapering her off a low dosage of anxiety medicine that was prescribed to her at the city pound due to the high level of stress in the overcrowded facility.
Gorgeous, medium size blue female, with some tan and light brindle markings at her extremities. Sadly, this sweet girl had her ears cropped very, very short by a previous owner. While it doesn't change anything about her disposition it does give her a more intimidating appearance.
Edwina is doing her best to adapt to shelter life but its not her cup-of-tea, for sure. She's very smart and quickly learning the routine. She enjoys her comfy bed and the attention from the volunteers, but its obvious she would much rather be in a home.
Edwina keeps her kennel clean and uses the doggy-door to potty outside. She may whine a little bit for attention but nothing bad. She hasn't been reactive to the other dogs as of now, and ignores them when she's let in and out of her kennel.
Timid but eager to make friends. She's an enthusiastic greeter and we are working on breaking her habit of jumping up on people. Her level of energy appears medium. She is a little needy for attention and has some anxiety issues that are likely caused by her abandonment. She longs for a home and we hope she won't have to wait too long.
Behavior with people:
While she loves women and quickly warms up to them, it takes her a little longer to trust men. She wants to, but she is very reserved around our male volunteers. She may bark and seems to have a protective side.
We believe this dog will attache herself strongly to her loved-ones and be a very loyal and dedicated dog. While in our program, we will work on socialization and update her bio as needed.
Behavior with children:
We were told she met kids and did well with them but because she is timid with certain people, we recommend a home with adults only. While she might do well with all members of her family, she could protect the children when their friends come over.
Behavior with other dogs:
While she is kept separate from other dogs at the shelter right now, Edwina spent a few weeks in a temporary foster home where she met an adult male with a similar personality. They played a little rough but seemed to know when to stop. They would then happily share a couch for nap time together. A home with a compatible male might work for her or she could be an only pet.
Behavior with other animals:
We have began working on training and she shows potential. She uses the doggy-door in her kennel to let herself out when she needs to do her business. That said, she has a sensitive stomach and is sensitive to food changes, which causes her to have accidents in a new home. She has a hard time to hold it very long and anxiety makes it a little worse. A balanced diet, good feeding routine and a chance to adapt to a new environment should have that issue resolved in no time
She's a beauty and we think she will be grateful for life to her loved-ones when given the home she deserves.
