Glory is an absolutely beautiful, 3 year old, mini Aussie. She came from a bad situation so can be quite shy with new people. While shy, Glory has really learned to trust her foster mom and will wiggle and smile for her. She has made HUGE improvements since being rescued but still needs a loving home to show her that humans aren’t bad.
She LOVES her crate and LOVES other dogs. She is even perfect with cats too (even a little scared of them if we’re being honest!). Little humans make her nervous but she just chooses to avoid them if they get too scary.
Glory has quite a bit of energy but does well with just running laps in the back yard to get the excess out. In fact, she is a totally different dog when outside. She is a lady and quiet in the house but once outside, she runs and plays and jumps and is hilarious. She is a clown and makes her foster parents laugh every day.
She will need to go to a home where there is another canine for her to bond with. She trusts other dogs immediately, and her trust in other dogs will help her trust humans. She has learned from her foster siblings to trust her foster mom and we have enjoyed watching her following their lead. She then takes that confidence and has taught another very scared foster dog (from the same situation) to trust.
Glory is mostly house-trained and crate trained. She only has accidents when she gets scared and does submissive urination. She is learning how to walk on a leash but doesn’t enjoy going potty on the leash. She likes to stick to her person (her foster mom) and lay down every time she stops.
Glory is still fairly fearful of anyone except her foster mom and will need the right home with someone who is VERY gentle, very positive, very patient, and who will give lots of love and cheese before she will begin to trust anyone. We believe in the right home, Glory could have a future as a beginner sports dog, therapy dog, or a loving companion.
She is spayed and up to date on vaccines. She will complete her heartworm treatment at the end of September which she has so far handled like a champ! She has some minor vision loss in her left eye that the vet believes came from a previous injury. Most people would never know she has any impairment. Glory is an amazing dog and has so much potential. Her foster mom is quite smitten with her and can’t wait to see the dog that she becomes in the perfect home.
Glory is currently fostered in Pittsboro, NC and her adoption fee is $250.
