ABBY, 6 year old female STAFFY-x - Brindle & White
ABBY came into care after the floods, along with Mango #2843 & Scarlett #2842, as her owners lost their rental property & did not have a secure place to live.
Before her owners adopted her, Abby lived on the streets & was then in the pound for a few months.
Her owners have had her for two & a half years & love her but unfortunately cannot have her at the property they are living in.
Abby is a very lovely girl, who will benefit from a home with a secure yard/rural property with active owners, who can exercise her daily.
She does like to watch TV & will bark & react to it. She is a bit of a clown, loves playing & racing around.
She is very fast & a bit of an escape artist so good fences are a must (she can climb & jump fences if they are not high enough).
She “talks”, almost sings sometimes, quite vocal😊 Abby lives inside, she is scared of storms & will hide during them, needs reassurance.
- Housetrained, will go to the door when she needs to go out;
- Playful, smart;
- Attention seeking (with people she knows & trusts);
- Walks well on the lead;
- Travels well in the car;
- Very affectionate & loving;
- Enjoys exercise.
- Not tested with cats, chooks or small animals;
- Has not been around small children;
- Needs a very secure yard;
- Needs daily exercise so must be a willing and fit household;
- Prefers to be the boss, so she'd likely only be good with submissive dogs;
- Afraid of storms, will hide, needs somewhere secure;
- Food aggression (with other dogs);
- Barks at the TV & doorbells etc.
