Annie | Pet of the Week

By on March 8, 2019 at 2:29 pm

Annie is an adorable petite girl. She loves to play with tennis balls, chew on bones and romp with other dogs her size.


Annie has not been well socialized and is shy toward people, strange noises, and new things. She will need a family who will be patient and understanding with her. She is very treat motivated and has already made strides by taking treats out of a humans hand.

Her new family should not have small children who can startle her and a fenced in yard would be ideal so she can explore in a safe environment. Annie has a lot of potential to be a loving and loyal dog, she just needs to gain confidence.

Will you be the human to help Annie?

Annie is a one-year-old beagle mix and weighs 20 pounds. Visit this cutie at the Helping Strays shelter.
