A Female Shih Tzu-x presently Reserved

Anabel is my name; I believe it’s a pretty name.  I needed a pick-me-up.  Fortunately I found my way to Animatch through Vaudreuil Animal Control who picked me up -- an unclaimed stray.  Like all the dogs I’ve met here at the Animatch Centre, I have a good memory but never hold a grudge … we are all just hoping for a second chance.  I come with some baggage but since I only speak dog, I can’t share it with you.  You will just have to love me enough that my past just won’t matter.  I am about 5 years old therefore clearly past that annoying puppy stage.  I know, I know, I look like a ragamuffin but just you wait until you see me after my makeover!  I am not a party girl, I’m more of a homebody.  My favorite place could soon become your lap!  After a few walks around the neighbourhood, I’d be happy to binge watch your favorite series on Netflix with you.    I like other dogs but if it were just you and me, life would still be good.  Apartment or condo living may well not be recommended as I can be quite vocal at times.   Given that I am on the shy side, I might find small children too intimidating; an adult family or one with older children would best suit me.  There you have it, I’ve told you as much as I can about myself.  I’m the real deal and I’m looking for a long-term commitment.  If you can open your heart to this smooshable face, please fill in the Adoption Form.  I’d like to meet you.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
