A volunteer writes:
Joining us with her housemate Shine after being abandoned by their owner, Garney is understandably concerned as to her change in circumstance. Shyly coming out of her kennel we walk to the park, Garney slow and easy on the leash. We’re told by the person who brought the dogs in that she is housetrained, sweet and friendly. It took her a short time to warm up to me, and when she finally took a treat from my hand I knew we were friends. She’s gentle and shy, not soliciting my affection, but allowing me to pet her all over. After a lifetime of living in a home, coming back to the place from which she originated has to be a shock. She’s a senior girl who should be snuggled on a soft bed, in a quiet home, surrounded by people who love her. I’m not sure that any of us would handle this sudden change too well, and she’s doing the best she can. My heart breaks for both she and her buddy Shine and I wish for both of them a new place to call home.
A volunteer updates:
I was looking forward to spending time with Garmey and her brother Shine again, and as Shine was out with another volunteer, was happy to devote my time to Garmey. She’s settled down now, happy for petting and cuddles, and letting me adorn her with a pretty scarf. She’s spry and perfect on the leash as is her brother Shine, takes treats gently and was interested in meeting other dogs. She gave me a gentle kiss, and when I look at her it’s easy to see how magnificently beautiful she was when she was younger. She’s still beautiful in that mature way of seniors……her gray muzzle and soft eyes reflecting years of experience. She deserves to spend her remaining years in the comfort of a good home; won’t you welcome her home?

Garmey walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Garmey had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. She was not interested in toys or rawhide. Garmey was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
Garmey did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home.
