Rainy

Rainy is a female terrier mix, weighing in at 46.7 pounds. She has been spayed, is up to date on all her vaccinations through December 2024. She is excelling as she completes her puppy training classes. She is approximately 18 months old. Rainy is full of energy, really smart, loves to learn, loves to play, run like the wind, ride in cars or trucks, play fetch with a ball or a stick or a toy. She like to wrestle with other doggies who want to wrestle too! She likes to be close to you and can be off leash and will come once she knows you are hers!. She would make a great walking, running or hiking partner. She will really thrive in a situation where there is adventure and activity as a normal part of the owner's lives whether single or with family. She should do well with other dogs - especially those closer to her age, who also want to play. She could be trained for agility as she is so very smart. Before being fostered, Rainy was severely neglected for over a year and then abandoned. Now with her foster mom's help she is ready to launch her new life with a engaging owner or family who want to make her an integral part of their lives. She has alot of love to share.
