Dog of the Day!

Ari sits so nicely for her photo shoot!
Sweet Ari came to visit my studio yesterday and wow (!) what a wonderful dog! As soon as this sweet girl arrived to my studio with her foster mom, she was as happy as can be! After a few minutes of sniffing around (I like to give the pups a minute or two to calm down), we got started on her photo shoot. 

Ari is incredibly treat motivated, which made working with her a breeze. She knows sit, stay and down and listened intently as I asked her to do sit still for her photo shoot. She took her treats gently and all in all was one of the best foster dogs I have ever had the pleasure to photograph in my studio!

Ari spent many months waiting for a chance at adoption with our county shelter, the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. While the shelter has a stellar adoption rate and saves nearly 95% of the animals that enter the facility, sometimes we find that a dog doesn't show as well in the shelter. This could be due to a variety of reasons, the dog is scared, they are too high energy, etc. After waiting for her turn to be adopted, Ari was finally pulled into one of our partner rescue organizations, Georgetown Animal Outreach, where she has been living with her foster, who says she has been a wonderful addition their household. 
While Ari enjoys the company of other dogs, she does play rough, so she will need to be adopted into a family that has experience managing multiple dogs.

Ari is a wonderful dog and would thrive with a family that has the time to devote to training her. She was incredibly focused during our photo shoot and would be a dream student for any trainer!
