Arista is a lovely, affectionate girl, but is failing to impress potential adopters. Like many dogs who have been in one too long, she misbehaves in her kennel, and she can climb chain link fences. She truly is a good girl at heart – she just needs a home and a family to take her out of her confines!
Second Chance Pet Rescue of Grand Lake in Oklahoma takes in dogs from states all around them, hoping to get them good homes nearby, but they have dogs transported all over. Arista is their longest resident, having been there two and a half years.
“Arista is often overlooked at our shelter because she acts badly in her kennel. She also is a fence climber. But, we see her as an affectionate little girl that needs more than a little kennel. She needs exercise and someone to love her.”
She and a sibling arrived at the shelter when they were three months old. They were transported to Minnesota, but Arista was returned because she was too shy, so she didn’t connect with adopters.
She can climb a four foot fence but there are things we can do to stop that behavior,” volunteer Laura said.
Chain link fences are her forte, but she would be fine in a yard with tall wooden or PVC fencing.
“Arista is wonderful otherwise. She walks great on a leash,” Laura continued. “She was in a foster home for a week. She got along great with the other dogs. She wanted to be top dog but when she was corrected, she was fine. I love her.”
