Abbey is a sweet 6 year old girl we adopted as a puppy with her littermate, Sandor. She loves people, sniffing, patrolling the perimeter, and belly rubs. She doesn't care much for balls or other toys, but loves sniffing games. She has not met a person she doesn't like, although she is wary of kids approaching her. She is generally good with other dogs, though from time to time she can be dog selective. I've had unleashed dogs at varying degrees of agression run up to her while on walks over the years and she has not reacted aggressively once.
When they were three, we lost her brother to a severe liver infection. It was a huge loss to us, and a huge loss for Abbey. She no longer had her brother to play with, wrestle with, drag down, or hump. We were lucky to avoid litter mate syndrome with them, but they were definitely still a bonded pair. Soon after I changed careers and my hours changed. I could no longer devote the time and attention to her and help her thrive.
After much consternation, considerations, deliberation and heartache, we have decided to try and find her a home that is better suited for her. We want her to thrive. We don't want to give her to a *different* home, we want to let her go to a *better* home.
