Holly is affectionate, tender hearted and a goofy gal.
While Holly was never taught basic manners in her previous home, she has proven to be a quick learner, often showing us her inquisitive and persistent side. We are working closely with Holly and her younger sister, Sophie to teach them the way of dog life. Because of this, we do feel Holly would do best with experienced dog owners. In addition to the experience, we would like to see Holly do some type of AnimalKind training with her human, to ensure she continues to strive in her new life!
Holly does well with other canine companionship and we feel she could transition well into a home with another female dog of the same temperament. She could also do well going to a home where she is the only pet as long as she was given plenty of opportunity to socialize. Holly cannot go to a home with small animals including cats and small livestock.
If you feel you can provide the necessary training and enrichment this girl needs to lead a happy and fulfilling life, please fill out an application to meet Holly!
