Kon'nichiwa! I’m Kyoto, but you can call me Annie. I'm a 55-pound, three-year-old Shepherd mix. When my owner passed away, I became homeless, so I am still adjusting to all the recent changes in my life and feeling blessed to be in a wonderful foster home with OPH. I am beyond happy at times, and keeping my foster families smiling is part of my job.
More about me:
- I am one happy girl, and fiercely loyal. My tail is always a waggin, and I smile from ear to ear. My foster just laughs with joy each morning when they say hello.
- I love car rides. I am so content in the car you may forget I am there!
- I am great in a crate and will sleep through the night, and if you want, I have no issues with cuddling up on your bed. I am a great guest.
- I have not chewed or destroyed any personal belongings of my foster family.
- I love to play with other dogs! I love meeting other dogs. I like dogs. I am great with dogs. Did I mention - I am a dog kinda dog? I have played with big dogs, small dogs, old dogs and young dogs. I've played in backyards, dog parks, creeks and even inside when I can get away with it. Maybe you know someone I can play with?
- Walking is the most fun. I am thrilled to get out for a walk as often as you want to take me. I enjoy a fast clip, so maybe some leash training would be a good idea if we want to learn to stroll slowly together.
- I like to chase bunnies and squirrels and I can catch them given the chance. My foster says I look like I am always watching for them- ALWAYS. Oh, the joy of anticipation.
- I am a smart cookie and like to learn. I have had some interaction with trainers and they confirm this - I love to learn.
- I lived with 3 cats in my other foster home. At first they piqued my interest, but now they are just part of my family.
- Prior to coming to OPH, I stayed with a foster family that had kids and they reported things went well. It is possible older kids would be good for me because I have some puppy energy bursts that might bowl over some wee ones. But, we just don't know until we meet.
- New experiences and meeting new people can be a little scary sometimes, but I continue to learn and experience new things everyday so it will seem less scary. I may have had a bit of a sheltered life prior to being rescued.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
