Do you think cuddling and PDA (public displays of affection) are gross? Prefer just to have a companion who is happy to be by your side, go for walks and lay quietly on their dog bed? And you live on an acreage? Ya? Okay – then please keep reading!
I am looking for a special home, not one that wants to fit me into their mold but rather just likes who I am. I came in with a group of very under socialized dogs, none of us had been handled as puppies, so I don’t look at human contact the same way a normal pet dog would.  It takes time for me to build trust and allow some contact with a person.
I have learnt a ton since coming to SCARS. I am delightful on leash and great in the house but I want nothing to do with that city lifestyle, all that =scary.  I am just a quiet, calm girl who wants to live in the country, relax with my dog and cat friends, nap at your feet in the living room, go for a walk and not be expected to handle all that petting nonsense. Please watch my video and read below for a note from my foster mom to make sure you are the right match for me before you apply, my grooming requirements are the biggest challenge!

A note form my foster mom! “She has made great progress from her days as a feral dog, but she still requires a calm, well managed environment.  A rural setting is a must.  She needs a fenced area for exercise and needs to be on leash at all other times.  City noises, traffic, too many people are too much for her and she will default to running away blindly.  She requires another dog or dogs in the home.  The dogs need to be confident, social and calm.  Tynder follows the lead of other dogs and wants to be a quiet pack member.  She would prefer a cat in her home as well, but this is not essential.  Her people have to be patient and okay with the fact that she does not wish to be touched.  She is happy to be with her foster family, but she doesn’t want to be petted.  She is a challenge to groom as she has a very thick and difficult coat and of course does not like to be touched.  It isn’t an ideal combination –  a dog who hates to be touched and a coat of fur that grows like bad weeds.  She is housetrained, loves food, and is content to sit quietly with family.”

 

 

Special needs:

Tynder requires a rural home, with a fenced area for exercise. She also must have a confident dog role model and she would prefer a cat as well!

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
