Prairie the dog needs a forever family in the Calgary area

Hi! I’m Prairie! Are you looking for a lovely, energetic lady to complete your family? Well, I’m looking for a human family who has dog experience as I do have some skills I need to work on, namely walking comfortably around other dogs. I’m currently available as a “Foster to Adopt” dog, which means that you have the opportunity to foster me for 2 weeks before choosing to adopt me! As I can be quite mouthy and need a gentle touch, human siblings would need to be 12 years or older. My dog skills aren’t like some other dogs and frankly, I prefer humans anyways, so I would like to be the only dog in your home. Off-leash parks would be too overwhelming for me so let’s stick to leashed walks in parks or hikes in quiet areas instead. As you can see from my photos, I love hikes! I am currently hanging out with my foster family but I would love to meet you! My foster family describes me as a very intelligent girl and sweet girl! If you are interested in me, please call 403-205-445 ext 6503 or come by the Calgary Humane Society so we can set up a visit!
