Arrival Story:
My husband and I already owned 1 dog, Gracie, and we came across Abby when she was only 8 weeks old at a local adoption site. We stopped by to see if we could be foster parents for the animals before they were adopted. To make a long story short, the people who ran the adoption site didn't stay in contact with us and it turned out that they were not honest about Abby's situation. She was very small and had an abscess on her face when we started taking care of her. We believe she came from a puppy mill type situation from somewhere in New Mexico. Since she was possible abused and neglected we decided to keep her because we couldn't let her go back to the situation she was in. It was the best decision we ever made, she has turned into such a great happy dog!

We believe Abby is a Shar-pei Heeler mix. She has the narrow face, ears, and body of a healer with the extra skin like the coat of a shar-pei. Due to Abby's neglectful first 8 weeks of her life we had many trust issues with her for about the first year. She didn't trust us at first even though we had been with us since she was about 8 weeks old. Over time she realized we would leave her and began to trust us more and more. Now she is almost 3 years old and is a completely different dog then she was when we first got her. She is very playful with us and our other dog Gracie. She is full of energy, love, and personality. Although we still have issues with her getting to trust and play with other dogs at the dog park, it's a slow process. She gets scared of other dogs especially large dogs, she also fears some people as well as children. She is never aggressive, just hides from people and other dogs.
