Meet Akila

Add to favourites

Akila is a gentle girl looking for a new lease on life.

She is a very affectionate and playful young girl looking for an adult only home. She has previously lived with and done well with older children (12+) but was surrendered to us when she became very protective over the newborn baby in the home.

She prefers the company of female companions and would be best suited for an experienced guardian due to some anxious behaviors she has shown in the shelter. She startles very easily with loud noises and will need a patient and caring guardian to continue using positive reinforcement to desensitize her. Coming from a rural area, Akila would be best suited to a home with yard access and would not be ideal for apartment, or city living.

Akila is very gentle and friendly with other dogs. We think a dog sibling would be a great companion for her. A good pairing might help her acclimatize to her new home, and assist with some separation anxiety.

If you would like to learn more about Akila, please send an application to the Abbotsford shelter today.
