Note: This dog is not in our
This is a courtesy listing only, to assist in finding him/her a home.
Posie spent the first half
of her life living in a multiple dog household and has never received one-on-one
attention. She has been experiencing new things since coming to our shelter such
as walking on a leash, spending quality time with people and learning the rules
Due to her previous history
and shy nature, Posie would do best in an quiet, adults only household. New parents
would need to understand the techniques involved with socializing a shy dog like
hand-feeding all meals to promote positive interactions with strangers. Best suited
to experienced home.
Posie is located at the
Bucks County SPCA in
Lahaska, PA. For more information on Posie email them at firstname.lastname@example.org

Posie has been Adopted!
9, 2005 Update:
Hi, I am the
person who adopted Posie and just wanted to give you an update. Posie is not Posie
anymore, her new name is Josie and she is doing so well. Josie is an absolute
sweetheart, she was extremely scared at first but has come so far in just the
2 months she has been with me. She is allowing me to pick her up which she would
not do at first, and she actually enjoys being bathed and groomed, I truly believe
she knows I am trying to make her look pretty and she enjoys that. She has even
started to eat dog bones, which sounds strange but she would not touch any kind
of dog bone what so ever, I dont think she understood what they were or
that she was allowed to have them. But, in the past couple of weeks
she has been eating and enjoying them.
I have an 8
year old shih-tzu as well and they have been getting along better, it was a little
touchy at first, Josie was on the defensive around my other dog but has been so
much better. After she understood the other dog was not going to hurt her, she
calmed down so much. It just took time.
I went to New
Orleans back in the beginning of October, I did volunteer work with the animal
search and rescue teams and as soon as I got back home, I went to my local SPCA
to adopt a dog and found Josie there, the moment I opened the door, she looked
at me as if I was her savior, and she came home with me that same night. She has
been getting very spoiled and deserves every minute of it, after what she has
been through. She is such a wonderful dog, and she will always have a home with
me. Thank you to your organization for what you do, and for these dogs lives that
you help save.
