|This is Addie at the shelter waiting to be free
It's been less than 24 hours so there's a lot for us to learn in the coming weeks. For now, this is what we do know:
Addie was brought into HSSA with an older puppy, believed to be hers, as a stray. The staff suspects it could have actually been the owner who told intake they were strays. Addie is no more, likely less, than 18 mos old and had a litter of puppies in her first heat..at under a year old and very much a puppy herself. The amazing thing is that she had been at the shelter since December.
She is very active, very smart, alert and very confident. She did not seem anxious being in a new strange environment and was more focused on playing with toys and bringing the ball to her foster Mom. Addie is a quick study and we're guessing it's going to be a fun ride......she just might be reclaiming her own, missed puppy-hood...
PRELIMINARY FOSTER REPORT: The word is that Addie never sits still so here's a rare photo of her doing just that. She hops right up onto tables and clearly demonstrates her athleticism...agility anyone?
Adoption fee to be determined.
