Miss Apple (Pink Lady? Crispin? Golden Delicious? pick your favorite) is an extremely sweet girl. Covered in ticks literally everywhere there was a fold or crease in her skin, this lovely lady should have been anemic! (They are all gone now.) But this just showed us that this poor sweetie lead a life of being outside. It also appeared she had recently finished raising a litter. However, when we brought her to be spayed, it was clear that this poor lady had probably been kept in a pen and overbred as her lady parts were nearly falling apart. It's hard to imagine why, but Apple still loves people! Did we mention she loves people? Are we sitting now? Okay. Are we walking now? Okay. Playing? Okay. Going back inside? Okay! Whatever you do she believes she is helping you do it better. She can also clear a four-foot fence with ease - so she needs good fencing around her yard. Thankfully, Apple has learned to love a crate so she and her people can have some down time. Apple gets along well with other dogs though she does not like it when high energy dogs get in her face. She has been neutral around cats but knowing her mix would probably give chase if one ran. And she has been great around kids so far so respectful children over eight should be fine by her. (She loves to do the Herding Dog Hug and may knock over unsuspecting children.) If you believe this girl is what you've been looking for, read on or go directly to throwmeabonedogrescue.org/adoption-process. It will be very helpful if you also include information of your experience with smart/herding breeds. All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - the link is found of the Adoption Process page. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
