ADOPTABLE PET: Say Hello to Garnet

Meet Garnet!

Garnet is a sensitive gal who needs room to relax and roam, smelling the grass and rolling in it.

She was adopted and returned within days – that was a home in the city and it was way over the top with stimulation for her. Garnet would thrive in a quieter environment in a quieter neighborhood where she is less exposed to noise, traffic and busy streets.

After spending some time with one of our lifesaving volunteers, we were told that when she is out on leash, she is more relaxed and seemed more interested in rolling in the grass and looking for treats.

Garnet's perfect fit of a home will understand and be experienced with dogs who are not willing participants in play and being hugged, touched or petted by by people if she does not want to, so an environment where she can enjoy a nice walk on a hiking trail in a quiet neighborhood where she does not have to be friends with everyone would be ideal!

Even though she is more on the shy side, this gal is highly food-motivated and incredibly smart so basic obedience classes will go a long way in her developing a relationship with her new family built on trust and leadership.

Think Garnet would be a perfect fit for your family? Stop on in to meet the little love-bug!

    I am very interested in Garnet. I had a German Shepard mix and she died in April 2019 of Leukemia.
    My husband and i were heartbroken. We cried harder for her then when our parents died. It was terrible.
    Garnet has the ears and eyes of our princess. Princess had a black saddle, medium size. I work from home so princess had me all day long at lunch time we took a nice walk around the neighborhood or we went swimming in my neighbors ingrown pool. Princess was a swimmer. Its okay if Garnet is not. My husband and i have a small 22′ camper and we have gone camping and taken hikes with Princess. Of course Princess always slept in our bed at home and camping. We treated her like a princess. We have six rescue cats that got a long with her. We have Tank our 20 lb male cat that slept next to her and napped with her. I have gone to other shelters. They recommend other dogs but i don’t have a connection. Garnet is my first connection. Barbara and Kenny
