Ethel
No Small Kids
Name: Ethel
ID: 46857396
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog / Mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 5 years 6 months
Size: Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
FOSTER TYPE: Trust Building and Socialization

FOSTER REASON: I am a fearful and undersocialized dog who needs a home in order to continue making progress.

FOSTER COMMITMENT: 8 weeks or until adopted.

ABOUT ME: Remember that big snowstorm? My friends and I were rescued right before that storm and we've been making slow, but steady progress since then. Unfortunately, we've made all the progress we can while in the shelter and need a foster home to help us continue our journey!

FOSTER HOME: I'm looking for a calm, quiet home with a securely fenced yard and no kids under 10. I'd like to meet all members of the household before I go home! While I do not require another dog in the home, it would likely be beneficial for me to have a friend to learn from!

SPECIAL NOTE: While I am not yet available for adoption, I am eligible for foster-to-adopt! Visits with me are by appointment only, so complete an online application today!
