Story: She was found as a stray as a pup, and was recently returned.

Say hi to Australia. She was born into our rescue on July 11, 2020 and now she’s back. 💔 She was returned for being undersocialized. We sent her to training and she’s doing so much better! She’s learning to be brave now. We know she will get more and more brave with time.

She is house trained and crate trained! He enjoys walks and does well on the leash. She would enjoy a quieter, more structured home who is willing to go slow with her. She does well meeting new people, but she needs the space to go up to them rather than being rushed! She loves to play with other dogs but would do better with a home with only 1-2 other friendly dogs (she gets overwhelmed with the chaos). Australia is cat friendly! She is head-shy so needs someone who is gentle and slow with her. She needs lots of positive reassurance in new situations to know she’s safe (she’s treat motivated so lots of treats!) Australia is so sweet and loyal, she will bond so hard to her safe people.

We are sad she didn’t have the happy ending we were hoping for the first time. Let’s do it right this time. Australia is looking for the right home where she can be her happy, loving self. She just needs someone to give her a chance. 🙏
