A volunteer writes: If I were giving out awards, Mary J would win both Best Hugger and Most Improved! When she first arrived Mary was lost and anxious. Surrounded by unfamiliar dogs and people, she didn’t understand where to turn for comfort. Yet what a difference a day made – Mary has adjusted so well to her new situation, going from unsure and timid to world-class cuddler in no time. She is wonderfully well-behaved, gentle and calm in her cage and an easy walker. She’s very responsive to commands, seems house trained and is so chill that when we rounded a corner and were suddenly face-to-face with two huge dogs she didn’t bat an eye. When we passed some children Mary seemed happy to see them, ears up and tail wagging. She loves to give hugs and kisses and is gentle when doing so, no shoving or pawing with this sweet girl. Mary J has won my heart and I know she’ll capture yours too. Please give her that chance, visit Mary J today and come prepared to snuggle!
A volunteer writes: It’s safe to say that Mary has stolen all of our hearts in no time. Adopted from us a while ago and just returned as her family lost their home we’re told that Mary is friendly and outgoing with new people happy to cuddle and nap in their laps. She lived well with young children, had play dates with another dog, loves to cuddle during thunder storms, doesn’t guard her things, is housetrained, slept with her owners, is well behaved when left home alone, loves toys, and enjoys “comfort foods” such as beef with gravy. Mary is a dream….she loved our walk pulling a bit to get to the next best sniff, has a gorgeously groomed orange coat, wanted to meet every dog we passed, large or small, loved playing gently with a plush toy, and gives wonderful hugs. I watched her in a play group and she was so tolerant of a pushy dog I was amazed at her good nature. She shakes paw, leans in and loves a good butt scratch and gives wonderful hugs and kisses. A proven family dog, to know Mary is to love Mary and she’s guaranteed to steal your heart as she has ours. Meet her today.
Mary is a 4 year old spayed APBT mix. She was surrendered to ACC at 1 year old because her family was moving. She was adopted and returned 3.5 years later because her owner lost his home and didn’t have a place to keep her.
Mary is friendly/outgoing with new people and is happy to cuddle when them and nap in their laps. She lived with 2 children ages 9-17 and is relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. She plays exuberantly with people. She’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with all dogs she meets outside. She had a playmate who was a female medium
sized dog. They visited each other often. Mary chases cats, but her owner thinks she’s trying to initiate play. Mary has never bit anyone.
Mary wants to cuddle with someone during thunder storms. She’s friendly with strangers who approach her home/family. She enjoys being brushed. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, bathes her, or trims her nails.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Mary’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and medium energy. She follows her family around. She plays with balls and stuffed toys and plays fetch and chase. She lived inside and slept with her owners. She ate Nature’s Miracle dog food-mostly dry with some wet food. She likes comfort foods like beef/steak and gravy. She’s housetrained and never has accidents. If walked, she will potty anywhere outside. If kept inside for long periods of time, she will potty on newspaper or wee-wee pads and is always very accurate, never getting any feces/urine on the floor. She’s well-behaved while home alone, even for long periods of time. She sits, gives paw, and stays when asked. She loves all walks. She pulls a little on her leash. She wanders and comes back when called unless she’s playing with other dogs.
Mary had a soft body and wagging tail while we pet her, scanned her (-), collared her, and walked her. She sat and gave us her paw when asked. She sat against our legs while we worked. She stood up and leaned into our lap gently while we pet her. She chewed on a ball that we gave her, relaxed at our feet.
PLAY GROUP NOTES
When off leash with other dogs, Mary offers polite greeting. She wanders the pen and spends time exploring. When she re-approaches the male greeter dog, she offers a bow and catches “zoomies” while running throughout the pen. She engages in bouncy play with another playful female.
