    Aubrey came into rescue in August of 2016 from a hoarding situation.  We do not know how old she is, but estimating she was born around 2008.  After months of being frightened by everything and everyone, she is finally getting used to having people around.  She seems to enjoy going to the Meet and Greets and meeting new people and dogs.

    Aubrey is a beautiful, sweet, gentle, playful girl.  When she gets excited about a toy, she is SO funny.  She loves to cuddle and play with her foster family’s other dogs and cuddles with Ivy Rose, another foster, most of the day.  She is growing in her trust of her foster family every day!

    She must have a quiet and stable situation, having had such a rough start to her life.  She loves being in the sunshine and prancing around the yard.  Having grown up in a crate, she really needs some space to be outside and run (with close supervision of course) and other gentle dogs to play engage her.  She gets startled by loud noises, from thunder to trucks going by.  And when startled, she will react by trying to get away from the bad sounds.  She is learning to accept being held securely and comforted when she gets frightened and that is wonderful progress! 

    Aubrey is not the type of IG to want to be held and lay beside you all day, she runs when you try to pick her up and if she ever got out a door or yard, no one would be able to catch her or trap her, she is much too easily frightened.  She, and all the other dogs we took in with her, are very special dogs and need a very special someone to care for her.  She has earned the right to have the best! 

    So please consider all these factors:  Quiet home, patience, other dogs, and a safely secured yard.
