Meet Raya everyone! She is approx one year old and 44 lbs. This long and lanky 11-month-old came to us from a high kill shelter in South Georgia. Raya is a very happy girl and gets happier by the day. Her most favorite person in the whole wide world at the moment is her foster daddy. Whenever she sees him, she lowers her head, gives him the puppy dog eyes, and wags her whole body waiting for attention from him. Despite foster mom being with her most of the time, she seemingly loves her men more. We are never sure what happens in the time before we get foster dogs, but we believe it has something to do with her being surrendered at the shelter by a woman that said she did not have time for her. Just like people having quirks, Raya also has her quirks. Raya does not love her neck being touched or having people put leashes on her. She does however enjoy vegging out on the couch and receiving a belly rub or two if you are offering. Raya is not a completely confident dog yet and would do best in a home with another dog. She looks to our dogs for guidance, confidence, and of course play! A companion for her needs to be confident, happy, and easy going. The dog should be calm enough to allow Raya to lay with them, rough house, and she tends to steal toys from other dogs. She does not have a mean bone in her body, submitting to most dogs and generally ignores cats altogether. While she would do fine with children, we would probably recommend older children that are not as rambunctious and are dog savvy. Raya almost certainly would do best with a fenced in yard. She absolutely loves her walks, and considering her non-confident nature, does well on them. Strangely, Raya is not afraid of most things that non-confident dogs fear like blenders, vacuums, trucks, and thunder. We believe that with a little time and some patience that Raya will become an amazing addition to someone’s family. Raya is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and ready to go home!
