Editor's note: This is a weekly series called "Pet of the Week" where we feature a companion up for adoption from Dakota County animal rescues.
Annie is a blend of redbone coon hound and a little pit bull. Her mix of breeds resulted in a beautiful, smart, loving dog who was rescued from a high-kill shelter at the last possible moment.
She came to us with ribs and hip bones showing at 34 pounds at 10 months of age. After some good groceries, she now weighs 50 pounds which is full grown.
Annie would make her a great running partner and she loves kids. Aside from sleeping on her back with all four feet in the air, she loves to play with the resident dog. Games of chase at full speed around the yard, keep my toy away and tossing a ball in the air for catch makes for an entertaining canine. When she isn't racing around with her buddy, she likes to sit in the back yard watching the tops of the trees for squirrels. When the chipmunks chirp, she can leap and jump just like a white-tailed deer.
She is great with kids, loves to lick bare toes and tolerates cats. Annie loves going for long walks and playing at the dog park. She would do best in a fenced in yard and having another playful canine would be wonderful for her.
Currently Annie is going to obedience training classes with her foster mom and she loves the chance to show how smart she is. Annie would enjoy doggie day care as well.
