Shelter Dog Has Been Waiting For A Home For Nearly Two Years
If you are considering adopting a dog, you may want to point your efforts at the Capital Made Society in Lincoln. That is where you will find a sweet, shy ‘Baby Girl’ that is between 3 1/2 and 4 years old.
According to the shelter, Baby Girl “loves to play, walk and cuddle” but according to the director of adoptions, Shelby Backhus, she does take a while before she warms up to strangers. She is a shepherd mix and has been at the shelter since December 2017.
“We’re looking for a home without other pets or children because she bit another dog before she came to us,” Backhus said. “That happens sometimes, but we think Baby Girl would be a great companion dog.”
If you are interested in going to visit Baby Girl and see if she is a good fit for your family, you can contact the Humane Society’s Pieloch Pet Adoption Center at 402-441-4488 for an appointment. You can also check out the online videos on the Humane Society’s website.
“We have spent a lot of time with (Baby Girl) in our enrichment program, and she has made a lot of progress,” Backhus said. “She really is a happy-go-lucky lady who loves to go for walks when she gets to know you.”
Baby Girl is fond of kongs filled with peanut butter, frozen treats, and stuffed animals. According to Backhus, the staff is recommending that at least a 6-foot tall privacy fence be available at the adoptive home so that she feels comfortable.
“If (potential adopters) have a trainer lined up, that would be good, too,” she said. “We’ve been working with Baby Girl, and she benefits from a lot of attention. When she’s comfortable, she’s a very playful girl.”
