Allie is available for foster or foster-to-adopt and is currently fostered in Manatee County, FL. Allie is a 5-6 yr old Kelpie mix. I have had her over a year. She was afraid of the world when we got her and has developed into a joyful loving girl with other dogs and people alike. She loves the water, she is quiet and unassuming. I do not think I have ever heard her bark. She is crate trained housebroken uses a dog door. She swims like a fish, runs like the wind jumps 4 feet high loves toys. She is known to give a nip or two when overjoyed but corrects easily. Her only vice. She is a joy to live with and accepts anything you put in her path. Allie could be an easy hiking dog, or a kayaker. She so loves the water. Allie will need a home in the country. She is not able to do walks on concrete so no suburbia life for her. She needs a pasture a pond and you. Allie has a severed Achilles tendon right rear. She came to us like that. We have opted for no surgery because she can currently do everything she needs to do as stated above. She is not in pain. She is on arthritis supplements. Our ortho vet, dr Kirsch has recommended no surgery and is overjoyed to see her mobile like this. . Thus the no sidewalks for Allie. She has no control of her lower limb and it thumps on the floor when she runs. Other than that she is a wonderful dog, who deserves her own family. I have contemplated keeping her, but I feel she needs her own people and doesnt need to be shared wtih a pack of other dogs. Please contact us if you are interested in sweet Allie. She has so much joy and love to give, and would be the best companion ever.
