Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Adel was unsocialized when she came to the Sanctuary, but she has made a lot of progress here. She has learned her name and will look at you when you call her. She's also learned to build trust with people through hand-feeding and will give new people a chance to hand-feed her, too. She loves to go for walks on the trails, but she feels more comfortable when a dog friend is with her. She also knows how to sit on cue, although she's more comfortable doing that in her room or yard than when she's out and about. Adel can jump in a car and rides very politely, but she prefers to have another dog there with her. This also goes for exploring new places: she will check out the new place but is happier and calmer with another dog there for support. It takes some time to build trust with Adel, but she allows her caregivers to pet her and recently started allowing her caregivers to brush her soft, gorgeous coat. With time and patience, Adel is starting to blossom. She would do best in a home with a confident dog (preferably male) who can show her the ropes and help her feel more secure.
