Description: 
Abigail is a 7 month old mixed breed who was brought up from North Carolina. She was raised on a farm and lived mostly outdoors. She hasn''t had any training thus far, and also missed out on a lot of socialization. Abby is fearful in many new situations, and of certain new people. She must go to obedience classes in order to work on her training and socialization. She is not the dog for a first time dog owner, and would be very overwhelmed by young kids. Because of this, she''s looking for a home with teenage kids and older. She is quite people oriented and loves to sit by you. Her foster home said that she loves to steal objects, but doesn''t generally chew them. She doesn''t yet understand quite what she''s supposed to do with most toys, but she is a playful girl who will pick up new things quickly. Abby hasn''t ever really been on a leash before, but she''s making strides towards that as well. Her new home will really need to focus on her training and socialization, but she''s definitely worth the effort. She will probably be trustworthy off leash once she''s had a bit of training, and seems like the type of dog who will bond closely with her family.
