Abby came into the Lost Dog family with her puppies (the A puppies), and now that they have all found their homes she is ready to find one of her very own!  She is a sweet and friendly dog. She has been a great mother, and now it’s time for her to find a family of her own.  She would love to join yours!

Abby is a sweet, loving young lady who wants to be your constant companion. She asks to be picked up but will also settle down on her mat or bed when told. Abby is alert to people and dogs passing by and will growl and make small woofs, but she doesn’t keep it up. She is well mannered with other dogs. In spite of her small size, this is a confident dog.

She understands that she is outside to take care of her business (and is responding well to praise and treats) but her foster mom hasn’t figured out her signals yet so there have been some accidents inside. She is crate trained to sleep through the night but needs a little work to stay dry.

This lovely dog shows all the signs of being a great addition to your home. She wants to please, and seems very, very trainable. If you’re looking for a petite companion dog, plan to meet Abby. But be warned – she’ll probably steal your heart.
