April is arguably one of the most beautiful dogs at our shelter. We think she is some sort of Hound mix and she is around 7 years old. Her spirit and active personality open up once she gets to know you. She is a fan of other dogs, and has even lived with cats before. April is part of our advanced obedience program, so our Adoptions Coordinator can speak to you further about her personality and see if she could be a great fit!
April’s journey with Adopt-A-Dog began in October of 2015. Originating at an Ohio shelter, April needed work building confidence to make her more comfortable in both a home and the outside world. We learned that she does well with the company of other dogs and found that this helped boost her confidence in being around another dog, leading April to be placed in foster with one of our staff members. In that home, she was with three other dogs, and we were able to really understand her hesitation with people. As her fosters gained her trust, April built more confidence knowing that they would not hurt her.
For April’s adopters, her new family would need to meet her several times and come to learn the training she has learned here at Adopt-A-Dog. Along with her fear-based behavior, April does resource guard high-value items from other dogs and humans. Our trainer and Behavior Coordinator would equip any family with the training they need. We would follow up with training after adoption to ensure April and her new family’s success.
An ideal home for April would be one with owners who understand and have experience with fearful dogs and can help build a trusting and lasting relationship with her. We know that this home is out there, and April cannot wait to find it!
*If you have a dog in your home, we require a meet and greet with the dogs to make sure they are a match.
