Abileen is one of those dogs who is always happy, happy, happy! And she expresses her joy with lots of wiggles, kisses, jumping, and vocalizations. She's looking for a person who will love her as unconditionally as she will love them, and who wants to share their life with an adoring dog. There is no doubt this girl will keep you moving! She would love a place to live that has lots of safe space for her, preferably a fenced-in yard. As much as she would enjoy hiking or long walks, it's very stressful for her to see other dogs, and that's a very common occurrence on trails, so a life-style that doesn't involve those meetings would be best for her. Abileen LOVES to ride in the car, especially if you find yourself at a drive-thru!

Abileen has really improved with her impulse control, but she's easily excited, and still jumps a bit when greeting, so she would not be a good match for a family with small children. She was found as a stray with another dog, but now she says she only wants the company of humans. When Abileen has seen cats, she clearly wants to chase, so she should not live where cats are nearby.

If you are looking for a friend who will always look on the bright side of life, she could be the one for you! A Good Manners training class is included in her $350.00 adoption fee.

Please call the Adoption Center at 802-476-3811 to schedule a time to talk to an adoption counselor about Abileen, and to determine if you should meet her.
