BIO: Rachael came from a divorce situation in NC along with another dog. They were returned to the breeder they were originally from, and she in turn gave them over to us.
Must have a fenced yard
Must have another young dog for her to play with since she’s just now learning to play
Must have the patience to help her with her potty training
Must be home a lot
Sadly, Rachael is very scared of new things and people. So, whoever adopts her must help her get over her fear of the unknown. Rachel will snap if she’s approached by strangers and it takes her time to trust new people BUT once she does, she will stick to you like glue. If you are looking for a loyal companion, then Rachael is for you! Just understand you have to work with her, she will not warm up to you right away.
Rachael is a sweet, loving girl and just wants you to give her lots of attention. You’ll need to be very patient while teaching her potty training. Please don’t let these things stand in your way of adopting this most precious girl. This little girl has a lot of love to give... help her to be the pet she should be!!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
