For the week leading up for National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, we have partnered with Freedom Dog Rescue and Bad Tags to showcase a different adoptable dog each day this week! Special thanks goes out to Bad Tags who generously supplied FDR with beautiful custom tags with the Freedom Dog logo on the back. You can read more about them here, and check out their funky tags on their site here to set your pet up with some sweet collar bling!

Meet Annie, a sweetheart who was rescued from the streets of Punta Cana, Dominic Republic. She is a medium-sized Dominican mix and is around one-year-old. Thanks to Air Transat, she was able to fly to Canada to start a new life here in Ottawa, a fact for which she is very grateful. She can be nervous around new people or situations at first, but with a little encouragement and time, she quickly builds more confidence in herself and other people. Once she’s comfortable, Annie is a true snugglebug and will soak up any and all love given to her!

Though shy and nervous at first, Annie has made such huge progress since she arrived in Canada and is quickly coming out of her shell. When meeting new people, or in new situations, she will need a lot of patience and reassurance from her adoptive family. Any sudden movements and loud noises frighten her, and she is still working on mastering stairs. This beautiful lovebug is very sweet with children and is also good with dogs once she has the chance to get to know them. She is house trained, but is still working on being comfortable in a crate.

Annie is currently no longer accepting applications for adoption, but you can check out other adoptable dogs on the Freedom Dog Rescue website and Facebook page

Annie is loving all the cuddles from her foster mom!
