This is Fala
She is a funny, spunky and loving 10 year old Australian Shepard with a huge heart. She has been a part of our family for 8 years, but sadly our circumstances are changing and we are seeking a retirement home for her.

For the last five years fala has lived on an acreage with horses, chickens and a companion dog. She is very social and requires an active lifestyle and must be part of a pack or at least have one dog companion. Without a friend fala becomes depressed, lonely and won’t eat.

She has been around our children with zero problems and enjoys playing with them and has been with our son since the day he came home from the hospital six years ago. She is naturally drawn to women but once she is comfortable with a man she is loyal to a fault.
This brings us to a couple of her issues.
Fala is protective of her people and her home. She is fine if she is introduced to a new person, but occasionally if someone she doesn’t know comes onto the property without her people around she will nip and become agitated. (This has happened 3 times in five years and moons was injured, just nipped at)
We adopted her from the Lethbridge spca and she was extremely abused and malnourished when she came home with us, and that is the reason she needs time to warm up.

Our family is moving into town and as much as our hearts want to bring her in, I know that she will fade without the companionship of a second dog and room to play. She still has so much good to bless a family with and deserves only the best, even though it hurts to rehome her.

If you feel you would be a good fit for this sweet lady or know someone who would be please contact me.

And please don’t hurl hurtful comments my way. This decision has not been easy to come to, but it is the right thing to do for her and that’s what is most important
