Beautiful, Adoptable Abbey is the Perfect Tripawd!
Please let us introduce you to our beautiful spirited girl, Abbey. This 1-2 year old spayed female is a medium to large size (54 Lbs) Aussie/Collie mix breed that will bring cheer to your holiday season and for years to come! Found as a stray in central North Carolina, Abbey was captured and spent ten days at the local county shelter before being rescued by The Farley Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization (“TFF”).
Abbey displayed a severe limp in her right, front leg which was subsequently discovered to be caused by a shattered elbow, the result of an apparent gunshot wound that was never treated. Thin and malnourished, Abbey spent the first two weeks at TFF receiving pain management while eating and sleeping to gain the necessary weight for surgery.[caption id="attachment_21092" align="aligncenter" width="504"] She loves other dogs[/caption]
Abbey is as sweet as they come and very tolerant with those who cared for her during her post-surgery recovery. Once Abbey was fitted with her Tripawd harness, life took on a whole new meaning. Nothing now prevents her from living life to the fullest; her recovery has literally progressed in leaps and bounds and she has blossomed into a stunning beautiful companion.
Abbey enjoys car rides and has no difficulty entering and exiting a vehicle. She insists on being the alpha dog and leads the pack through numerous nature trails; she has built up her endurance to walk up to 1.5 miles with a periodic rest stops. Being “on the go” is a priority for Abbey but she has a definite “off switch” once she exerts her youthful energy. She loves other dogs and prefers younger, somewhat smaller active females for play. Abbey has yet to discover the wonderful qualities of our frisky felines and at this time we recommend a home without cats.[caption id="attachment_21089" align="aligncenter" width="504"] She is treat motivated and will happily oblige any request.[/caption]
She’s as Sweet as They Come
Abbey loves everyone she meets and displays a particular fondness for little girls. She is very eager to please and will gladly roll over for a belly rub! Above all else, Abbey adores her humans and would be an excellent companion for retirees, a stay home parent or a door greeter for a local business. Abbey will definitely be an easy companion, especially if the home has a fenced yard and a deck for sunbathing. She is totally housebroken (14+ hours).
Abbey is also a physical beauty in her own right. Her coat is full and extremely soft to the touch and accented with fluffs of white on her hind quarters. Abbey is completely vetted, UTD on vaccines & monthly preventives and heartworm negative. She is nondestructive of toys and/or bedding and finds comfort in her cozy bed. She is treat motivated and will happily oblige any request.[caption id="attachment_21091" align="aligncenter" width="508"] Abbey will definitely be an easy companion[/caption]
Abbey is a rare find and will undoubtedly bring considerable joy to one lucky family. If you are interested in this lovely creature, please complete our online adoption application by visiting The Farley Foundation or for more information contact Betsy Ficarro at (910) 315-9569 or via this email.
Please note that we do accept out of state adoption applicants.
