Tori is black with a lot of white accents including her paws, neck, chest, belly, the tip of her tail, and an adorable patch that extends from her nose to her forehead.
Tori is a very sweet, silly, affectionate, and cuddly girl. She loves belly rubs and rolls over as soon as you start petting her. Tori loves to prance around the house and loves to play chase with her foster brother. She absolutely adores her toys. And if you don’t play with her, she plays with them herself--tossing them up in the air and catching them when they bounce around. Tori is house- and crate-trained. She has done very well with kids and other dogs in the neighborhood. She is just a little shy and needs a loving, stable home where she can be her silly self. A home where she is the only dog might be ideal for her so she can gain some confidence.
Tori is up-to-date on all vaccinations, spayed, and negative for heartworm. When she came into IAR we found that she had a painful leg condition, a dislocation of the hip joint that caused lameness in one of her hind legs. We were able to get her corrective surgery as a result of the wonderful generosity of people who donated to her fundraising campaign. And we are thrilled to say she is recovering very well!
Tori was found near Mount Mitchell by an IAR volunteer.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
