This gorgeous girl is Adele.
She’s wonderful in the house, doesn’t beg, doesn’t countersurf, sleeps in her crate.
She’s very loving too. Loves a run in an off leash area, we have been taking her to a private off leash, there were trees and bushes, she enjoyed some nose work looking for hidden treats, playing hide and seek and running around with her two buddies.
Adele also likes to go play in the river, she lays down and rolls in the water, she does the same in snow, the deeper the better, she will launch herself into snow banks!
Adele was on medication when we first fostered her and has slowly been weaned off from it, we didn’t notice much of a difference in her behaviours during the wean off period, she was as good as always with us and our dogs.
Lately Adele has been showing some possessive type behaviour relating to us, she appears very uncomfortable if we have visitors or any people get too close to us when we are out on walks, she’s a strong girl and can put up a bit of a fight, she’s also very capable of selective hearing. We are currently working with a trainer and BARC's Rescue to correct this behaviour.
Adele loves to be out and stands very nicely to have her harness and leashes put on.
She does pull but if you are in a no distraction area will calm down and walk quite nicely.
She used to get extremely car sick but that has now subsided, she might drool slightly for a few minutes, then calms down.
This lovely girl needs a firm but loving home to help her overcome her fears and become the awesome dog we know she can be.
At this time it is recommended she goes to a child free, dog free home.

Adoption costs: $650.00
