• Animal ID#: A304200
  • Dog Name: Addy
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 3 years
  • This girl is absolutely gorgeous and soft as can be, and she’s terrified in the shelter environment. She’s a gentle and dainty girl in every way. She’s very submissive and nervous, and does not win over potential adopters as she tries to have space from people. We are specifically looking for a family that understands she will not walk right up to you, she won’t do it in 15min but she will do it over a few days as she has with many of the volunteers. She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs, mostly sitting in the corner as she’s so scared. All she needs is a loving family and TLC; in a home, she’ll come out of her shell and thrive!

Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process or to find out more about Addy.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
