Description:Other Pictures of Carol (click to see larger version):
Carol, her siblings and quite possibly her mother were among the dogs that were surrendered by their former owner. While at their former home, Carol and all the other dogs simply roamed freely, didn't receive proper socialization and weren't properly vaccinated. It was also clear to see that most were very thin, which was most likely due to very limited feedings and improper proportions when they were fed. Ironically, we had plans to take these dogs in when the pups were much younger, but lost contact with the owner until the pups were almost a year old. With their lack of proper human interaction as pups, Carol and company were all very hesitant of our offers of friendship when we first met them.
Carol is very curious, smart and a little independent. She loves to go exploring even if it means missing out on the fun and games that her siblings are enjoying. That's not to say she's unsociable as she enjoys her one-on-one time with people. Her inquisitive nature could very well make her a great candidate as a service dog or in some other form of specialized training.
Carol has been fully vetted and kept on her monthly preventatives since her arrival. She also tested negative for heartworms during her recent vet examination. While there were cats at the former home, we're not positive how Carol will coexist with them. Carol will most likely need additional house training.
