Big race coming up? Need a training partner? Bonnie is your girl!
We are not sure of her past but she loves to run. Bonnie would love a home with room to run in a large fenced yard. She doesn’t have good recall, probably because she doesn’t really know her name. She would love a moderately active family. Her foster family has no children at home, but based on her gentle demeanor, we feel as though she would do well in a home with older children. She does not jump up on people, at least has not done that here. She’s fine with men and women, not skittish, doesn’t appear abused, just lost or abandoned. She is very submissive with other dogs and does well with them. She has not been around cats.
This girl was found very malnourished and at deer camp by a nice young man who picked her up. She is a friendly girl and loves everyone she meets. She falls easily into a routine. Not a big barker. Seems smart, mastered the doggy door almost immediately (flap had been previously removed).
We feel as though Bonnie was somebody’s hunting dog who was possibly dumped because she didn’t hunt well. This is just speculation (since she was found on a deer lease with limited access to the general public), but in the South, if a hunting dog or hog dog gets away, or doesn’t hunt, nobody usually looks for it, they just get another dog. We feel Bonnie has been an outside only dog, since she is very skeptical of being in the house. These dogs generally adapt well when they are in a “normal” family, and are able to be a family member, but might take some extra patience when she gets her own family, while she adapts. She’s not overly active and is a very sweet soul.
