Shania M - Adopted on 9/2/2022

Age:  About 9 years
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Hound/Shepherd Mix


She is about 8 years old. She does well with other dogs and has no interest in cats. She has finished heartworm treatment,but will need a couple of more tests over the next year to make sure she is completely heartworm free.These tests can be done at our vet, Parkway, in Burke VA,and HART will pay. Shania has abandonment issues. She will be very nervous at first,and will take a while to warm up to new people. Once she has warmed up, she loves attention. She likes to "pack" with the other two dogs in the house and will play with them. SHe would probably do best with a confident dog in the house She is pretty much housebroken and will generally come when called if she is in the back yard. She walks OK on a leash, though she is not an enthusiastic walker, and she gets scared when first riding in a car,but will settle down.
