Brief Bio:

Meet Bania! Bania was rescued from a dumpsite in a rural country area. Her “owners” left her there and would feed her once every 2 days. This poor girl was living in horrible conditions, and didn’t know what human affection was.

Bania is very smart, and extremely food motivated. She is easily trainable, and actually thrives on clear rules and boundaries. She is loving, sweet, happy, and has the best full-body waggle you’ve ever seen. She’s good in the car, she’s house trained, uses the doggie door, and doesn’t chew things she’s not supposed to. (She is a counter-surfer, though!) Bania has a lot of enthusiastic energy, and she will need at least an hour of exercise a day. She would be great at an activity like agility or scent-work, and would love to be a hiking or jogging companion.

Bania will need to be with an experienced dog owner, who understands more advanced behavioral issues. She was separated from her littermates too young, and has some of the typical issues from that. (She didn’t learn bite/play inhibition, lacks ability to interpret social cues, etc.) Also, her early experiences with humans were fearful, so she has some stranger-danger reactions. At this point, she’s fine with people outside of the house, and as long as strangers inside the house are sitting and have food, she’s quite happy to welcome them in.

Bania is eagerly waiting for the right person or family, who can continue the great work that she’s been getting in her foster home, and help her keep growing and thriving! She’s being fostered in El Sobrante, and meet-and-greets can be arranged as long as safe-distancing can be maintained.

How to help?
