Guinnevere 8 yr old spayed female - PA
Guinnevere is a total love bug!!
Guinnevere is a very sweet 8-year-old spayed female. She was found as a stray and when she came into the shelter, she was in very bad shape. It was apparent that she had been overbred, and very neglected. With the loving care from her foster family, she looks like a totally different dog.
Guinnevere stands approximately 24" at the withers, weighs 63 lbs and is a fawn color with a black mask. Her foster mom is quite impressed with her conformation and describes her as follows..."she has a really lovely topline which is amazing considering all the puppies she's had. She has nice short hocks in the rear which allows a dog to cut and turn easier (more agile) and her hocks are nice and parallel. Breed standard calls for the tailbone to come down to the top of the hocks at least...hers is even longer and you don't find that too often anymore! She's clearly American old-style in head and strong, strong forequarters. She's a well put together girl!"
Guinn might not be a puppy per her chronological age, but she apparently hasn't been told that. She views life with the spirit of a puppy, always eager to make the most of every moment and absolutely loving life. She has a one-of-a-kind, larger than life personality and is so playful and silly. Being with her brightens the gloomiest day and her happiness is infectious. She has some very endearing habits like her eating ritual. She will carry her food bowl to various places as she eats her meal, never spilling a drop of it as she moves it.
The lucky family that adopts Guinnevere will find she is a very quick study. She didn't appear to know any behaviors when she arrived at her foster home but has learned to sit and focus on her handler. She has already learned she must sit and wait at the open door to the outside until she is released. She is house trained, is a dream to walk on a leash and is an angel in her crate. She is very quiet and not destructive.
She is well behaved in the car and great company, not making a peep. She has passed motorcycles, bicycles, people, animals and she never barks or reacts but simply lies down quietly in the back seat.
She loves to go for long walks and play ball. Her ball is her prized possession. She is not extremely high energy and is content to lie at your feet while you read, work on the computer or watch a movie. She adores belly rubs and will eagerly roll over so you can attain maximum contact and coverage. She is like glue and wants to stick to her people as close as possible and would crawl into their pocket if she could.
Guinn doesn't know a stranger. She quickly accepts new people and eagerly solicits affection from everyone she meets. She is very well behaved at the vet, allowing the vet and techs to poke and prod her while maintaining her unflappable, cheerful disposition.
On her very first visit to the vet, Guinn was diagnosed with Ehrlichia, which was in the chronic stage. She has made a remarkable recovery due to the wonderful care given by her foster mom and dad and her titers show that the Ehrlichia has been beaten!! Her blood values are still recovering and we are told, it can take bit before they are totally back to normal. This has not affected her quality of life what so ever and as mentioned above, she has the heart of a puppy.
Guinn will do best in a home where she is the only dog. She will not go to home that has cats.
Guinnevere is extremely bright and eager to please. She is very sweet and affectionate and deserves a home where she will get lots of attention with someone.
