01/28/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Bright, but confused, amber eyes look up at me from her kennel. Her tail wags in anticipation, and out we go. Adya’s coat is as soft as the finest velvet, the color of a latte with lots of milk. She’s likely housetrained, and her lovely leash manners make her a perfect companion for a walk to the park. Wagging her tail at passersby, of both the 2 legged and 4 legged persuasion, she’s interested in everyone, and even seems to want to join a group of joggers running past us. From time to time Adya does little bounces on leash, as if she forgets for that moment that she’s in a new and confusing place. A bit shy, Adya follows me around the pen, gives me stand up hugs, and when I sit down puts her paws in my lap for more hugs and a soft kiss. She’s so sweetly gentle, interested in the activity going on outside our pen, wagging her tail as staff passes us. In her first playdate, she politely wagged her tail at the helper dog, and then solicited attention from the handlers. As we go inside heading back to her kennel, we stop and talk to a staff person, Adya wagging her tail as she makes a new friend and even gives her a kiss! Adya is a Hindu word meaning Mother Earth, and our Adya is ready to be the center of her new family or person, loving them to the moon and back. Let’s give her that chance to mother her new people; she’s a sweetheart who will do just that.

ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Adya so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment.
