Babs is an 8 year old spayed female. She is beautiful and a great personality. She is looking for an adoptive home where someone can help her learn what living in a house is like and getting all the love showered on her as possible. She is doing well in her crate with minimum accidents; she walks pretty good on leash and just wants tons of attention and love. Babs would do best as an only dog or with a non dominant male. She would be fine around older children. Please fill out an application if you are interested in Babs.
7/14/2011 Update from Bab's foster home:
Babs, PuzzleBob and I have been enjoying each other this first week. I've been trying to establish some routines, allowing Babs to learn about the world since there are some scary things - dumpsters, plastic bags and vacuum cleaners being pulled along the sidewalk; and some fun things - taking walks, visiting the dog park, cookies; and listening to NPR or the Washington Nationals Baseball games while the human does human things. Seems that both WFTs would like to help me knit...
Babs is starting to answer to her name, is practicing "sit" and "wait" and showed some interest in the laser pointer when PuzzleBob was chasing it. So far squeeky toys haven't attracted her attention. The carpet continues to be clean and dry as the house-training seems to be a quick lesson.
Babs has even made some canine friends. Smokey is particularly nice since he doesn't ask much of his friends other than they hang out with him. All the humans think she is beautiful and so delicate, and no one can believe she could be 8 yrs young.
Hopefully a few of these pictures are clear and bright enough to be shared with the AFTR community.
Julia, PuzzleBob and Babs
Thanks for update, Julia! We can't wait to hear more!
