ADOPTED ON 12-20-14 – Annie is spayed, female, golden retriever /Great Pyrenees mix, she is approximately 48 lbs. She was found with her seven beautiful puppies, where they were dumped and abandoned at an old house in Louisiana. Annie stood watch and tended to her puppies the best she could without being provided with any type of consistent nourishment. Even when she was starving, she made sure her puppies ate first. Someone eventually picked up 6 of the 7 puppies, who were adopted into loving homes, but Annie remained with the 7th puppy. She refused to leave him… Finally, the 7th puppy was rescued and Annie wandered over to an elderly woman’s home in search of food and water. That is when her foster mother got the call. The first thing Annie’s foster mother noticed was her sweet soulful eyes and how she rested her head on the back of the seat in the car onto her shoulder as if to say ” Thank You” She said the song “Sweet Annie” began to play on the radio and it was as if the words were speaking to her. Her foster mother vowed that Annie would stay with her until she was placed in the loving forever home she so much deserves!Due to being exposed to the harsh conditions of the Louisiana swamplands and ruthless mosquitoes, Annie is heartworm positive. Her foster mother says she shows no outward signs, and her case is mild. She is currently being treated with Ivomectin on the 1st and 15th of the month, as well as taking flea medication. Annie is up to date on all vaccinations.
Annie is a very loving dog with a carefree spirit who loves to run and play. She enjoys fetch although she doesn’t always bring the ball back. She can easily be taught to bring the ball back, but this silly girl is so charming she often entices everyone to join in her own version of the game, as she is having so much fun! She is very friendly and loves everyone she meets. Great with kids and loves playing with them! She currently lives with 16 other dogs. She barks at cats and small animals through the fence, but her foster mother is confident that with proper introduction she could certainly live in a home with a cat. Annie has a moderate activity level and needs a fenced yard to be able to play in. She is still working on her housetraining skills as she was not exposed to being a house dog until recently. She does well in crate and walks well on a leash. Annie loves going for rides in the car! She has no known fears or food issues
Annie would do well in almost any family. This love bug, just adores her people as well as fellow canines! A fenced in yard with lots of room to run and play is helpful but not necessary as long as she get daily exercise. Her new owner should be someone who will make play time a daily ritual, and provide her with the daily exercise she needs, as well as provide herwith the proper medical care. At night they would provide her a dog bed of her own to curl up in at their feet, or welcome her to sit on the couch next to them, and assure her she will never be abandoned again. There is a possibility that her new home could include a cat, provided the cat is dog savvy and introductions are done properly. Do you have room in your home and your heart for sweet Annie? One look into her eyes and you know she will be grateful forever!

- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
