This shy but very sweet 1 year-old girl is Tinkerbell. She has a beautiful reddish coat and looks like she might be a Pharoah Hound mix. We don’t have any history on Tinkerbell as she came to us from an overcrowded rural county dog shelter. Although she’s been very shy and timid in new situations, there doesn’t seem to be a mean bone in her body. It’s just going to take her time to relax in a new environment so she needs a new person or family who can give her the time and space to do that. Tinkerbell gets along well with other dogs so would benefit from having a calm confident canine buddy in her new home to show her the ropes and boost her confidence. Given her shyness, she is also going to need a home with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence. Tinkerbell has done well with crate training in her foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. She had a bath recently and seemed to enjoy soaking up all of the attention that entailed. Tinkerbell is still nervous on a leash but getting a little bit more comfortable each day. She really needs a home in a very quiet neighborhood or rural area as a busy urban or high-density suburban environment would be very frightening for her. We can’t wait to see her relaxing in her new home and enjoying the best life a dog could wish for. Tinkerbell weighs about 40 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
