Ariel looks like a shepherd mix but she is rather small weighing in at about 25 to 30 pounds.
She did come to us thin and scared and very timid.
For the first couple weeks it was as if she could not eat enough dog food, but that has leveled off now. She now eats 3 cups of dog food twice a day and I add either a fresh egg or a tablespoon of dog food. We have chickens and have had too many eggs of late so have been sharing them with the foster dogs.
Ariel was an owner surrender to a local animal shelter, and given her general shape it’s a good thing she was surrendered.
I’m not sure what her home was like but this pup was a mess: scared of everything, wallowing in her poo and just no self-esteem.
We had to coax her out or her crate but now she runs out and goes to the dog yard and she comes up to us for attention as well.
We have had her for three weeks and she is finlly not pooping in her crate all the time. She still does but it’s getting less and less.
And the big thing is she no longer wants to touch it! This is a big step towards not pooping in her crate and then house training.
I rather doubt she is house trained.
Ariel is good with all the dogs, she is on the bottom of the doggy heirarchy.
She loves to play chase games with other dogs and she does do her fair amount of digging but I think to cool off in the heat as the dirt is cooler. It’s been so hot.
She has started to explore toys and doggie chewies.
Ariel has been wormed, spayed, had her rabies shots, tested for Heartworm and is on Sentinel for heartworm preventative.
She also had her Bordetella and basic shots.
