Description:

***Rachel is currently located at our rescue in Georgia but also available for adoption in the New Jersey and surrounding areas.***

Rachel appeared at the home of a local resident one day fully pregnant and close to delivering her pups. After her four pups were old enough to be moved, we took them all into our rescue. Her pups were adopted pretty quickly but Rachel, who was heartworm positive at the time, had to remain with us while she regained her health and eventually treated for her heartworms. Now that she's healthy, Rachel is ready to find her new home.

Rachel is a very friendly, calm girl who really just wants a human friend that she can love and trust in. While her initial reaction towards new people is to bark at them, Rachel turns to mush quickly once she realizes you're not a threat to her or her home. She's laid back, calm (yet very playful) and enjoys just being part of whatever her people are doing. While she initially got along very well with other dogs and may be again, Rachel now seems perfectly content being the only dog. Because of her initial reaction to new people, we'd not consider a home with young children at this time. 

Besides being treated for her heartworms, Rachel has also been fully vetted and kept on her monthly preventatives since coming to us. She's gotten a bit overweight in her time with us but she'll trim down once she has a home that allows for more exercise time. Rachel appears to have some housetraining experience but may need additional training.
