SYDNEY FOSTER and ADOPTER NEEDED!
Sydney is a petite girl whose body bore evidence of a horrific life prior to rescue. The veterinarians suspect she was used as a bait dog. She was rescued in an area known to be a dumping ground for bait dogs. Sydney came to Maxx & Me terrified, emaciated, body covered with scars and wounds and needing urgent emergency medical care. Sydney girl had to fend for herself her entire life. The scars are visible from the outside but have also greatly hurt her and her ability to trust humans. Once she trusts you, she LOVES YOU and will not want to leave your side!
Sydney requires a loving, kind and patient foster and adopter. She is a flight risk so she needs an experienced foster who will ensure they keep her safe. She does not like being separated from her human and her ideal home is one without other dogs. This is not to say she won’t be ok with other dogs at some point however due to her suspected background as a bait dog, she doesn’t understand how to socialize when dogs get excited and she is protective of her food, no small kids and someone home a lot. She has been introduced to dogs and cat but ideally she is best as an only dog. A secured 5-6′ fenced yard is an absolute requirement! You will have to double leash (harness and martingale for example) for a while when taking her on a walk as loud noises can scare her. She loves to snuggle and be close to her humans. She is mostly housebroken, may have an accident but has been doing exceptionally well. Sydney knows sit, stay and stay to wait for food! Sydney weighs about 37 lbs +/-, is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Her adoption donation is only $250!
