Lauren is a 3-year-old terrier mix who is looking for a fresh start for her life. When little Lauren was picked up as a stray dog, she looked more like a dirty rag mop than a living creature. Lauren was found severely neglected, matted and very frightened of every sound, movement, dog, or person she encountered. Staff patiently worked with Lauren to build her trust in people again, and after about three weeks of gentle touch, she was ready to meet a few volunteers. They continued socializing Lauren, with quiet cuddling and petting until she felt brave enough to get off the lap and start to explore the world. Soon she was able to meet a few dogs, and gradually her confidence grew enough that she was able to take a walk with them.
Lauren now happily greets new people and dogs, and enjoys going for walks with them. Lauren is looking for a patient, gentle person or family that can help her continue to develop into the wonderful dog she is meant to be. If you think you can give Lauren the love and training she needs, please come in to meet her. Her story is sure to touch your heart Her adoption fee is $130, which includes spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
