Sigrid, 18-126's Bio

Sigrid went to a family as a young pup who put her out on a chain. She had no trees for shade, no house to protect her from the elements, or even a bowl for her food. Occasionally someone would come out and dump a bag of food on the ground and call it good. Sigrid had nothing. Lucky for Sigrid, the neighbor spotted her, and began helping her despite her owner’s protests. The nice lady gave her a house with straw, bowls for food and water, and tried to make her as comfortable as she could. Over time, the nice lady talked her owner into letting her come over to play with her dog sometimes, and she enjoyed those times immensely. Eventually, the owners moved away and left Sigrid, and the nice lady was able to go get her off the end of that chain once and for all. Sigrid is extremely smart and  quickly picked up the routines of life indoors with a real family. She housetrained almost immediately, and was crate trained in no time. Sigrid gets along with other dogs, but needs a home with no kitties as she will chase them. Sigrid is learning how to be a lady on a leash, but knows her basic commands, and is expected to excel in Paws in Prison. She is as beautiful as can be, and can’t wait to find a family of her own that will give her everything she was missing in the beginning of her life, for the rest of her life. Sigrid is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 Sigrid is in the Paws in Prison program where she receives obedience training.  She is expected to graduate from Paws in Prison on 12/06/18.

 

The dogs in this program are trained under the AKC Canine Good Citizen standards and are specifically selected to be family and companion dogs. They spend 24 hours a day with their trainers. For that reason, they will do best in homes where they are primarily inside dogs and spend lots of time with their families. The adoptive family will receive Sigrid’s training journal. This journal documents her arrival from the shelter, her daily training progress, and her interactions with her trainers.If you are interested in meeting Sigrid or learning more about the adoption process, please visit our website and submit our online adoption application here:
