Hello, my name is Ansley and I'm a 45 pound, female, two-year-old heeler mix looking for my forever home. Right now I'm at a scary shelter and I'm not sure how I got here. The people are pretty nice and I have made some doggie friends, but it's really cold and loud. Everyone was really nice to me and my puppies, but my puppies are bigger now so they don't need me any more. After taking such good care of them, I'm kind of tired now and need someone to take care of me. Sometimes my friends and I talk about how great it would be to find a forever home and people who will love us forever and ever. That would be such a dream come true! I tell my friends everything will turn out okay.

I've heard that at a forever home you get a nice soft dog bed with some fun toys and some yummy treats. I'm kind of skinny now, so I think I should get all the treats I want! I'm a little bit shy, so need to go to a home with an existing dog to show me the ropes and give me some confidence. At a forever home you get snuggles and kisses and lots and lots of pats. Sometimes you even get to go to the dog park and on long walks to places like a beach or the mountains. It sounds too good to be true! I just can't wait!

At my forever home I'd really like to go to obedience school to learn my manners. I know it's very important to be polite and well-behaved. I want my forever people to be able to take me every where with them! I just love other dogs and people. I haven't met and cats or kids yet, but I'm willing to give it a try.

Are you willing to take a chance on me? I'll make it worth you're while, I promise!

FOSTER UPDATE: She is terrific with children! She is very calm and doesn’t jump up on people. She is not a big licker and she doesn’t bark. She is very submissive and very calm. She does beautifully in her crate, from about 8 PM to 6 AM in the morning. She is still a bit fearful of busy streets. Strange loud noises scare her, like the sound of garbage cans being pulled down her driveway. She is very submissive with other dogs. But even after just three days she is starting to warm up and relax. 

Like most shelter dogs, Ansley may need a refresher on house training. She is likely crate trained.

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire  and email it to Kristen at .
