Sweet ‘Spaghettios’ has been at the shelter too long and needs our help


Spaghettios has been at Carson Animal Care since May. She arrived as a stray, had no microchip and appeared to have been bred repeatedly; and then either ran away or was abandoned. She is six-years-old, has a great disposition and would sure appreciate everyone sharing her story and her video to help her find a home where she can be loved.

Last week, Spaghettios was adopted; she was so excited and left the shelter wagging her tail and with the biggest smile one could imagine. Unfortunately, she was returned just days later – her new owner told the shelter she didn’t get along with the family dog.

And here she is again – waiting for someone to love her.

Spaghettio's was sleeping in front of the kennel when the runner arrived. The runner woke her up by gently calling to her,and Spaghettio's sat up and walked towards the runner. She had a neutral body, relaxed ears, slow tail wag, and eyes thatappeared sad, yet soft. The runner placed her hand on the fence, but Spaghettio's simply sat and stared at the runner and didnot acknowledge at the fence. The runner opened the kennel door and presented her leash, but Spaghettio's stood up and walked to the back of the kennel avoiding the leash. She continued to avoid the leash requiring the runner to step inside and place the leash on her. She was able to be easily leashed and safely removed from the kennel. Oncewalking through the dog run, her body remained neutral as she walked well on the leash with the runner, bypassing the dogson the way to the catch pen. In the catch pen, she slowly approached the fence to greet the dogs with a neutral body and soft tail wag. She allowed the runner to place the collar with ease and was led into the yard.Once in the yard, she greeted a male dog that approached her with a stiff body, hackles up, tail wagging high, and shiftyeyes. The tense greeting lasted for a few moments and her body shifted once she felt comfortable to a bouncy body wantingto engage in play. She explored the yard on her own for some time when she walked into another male dog and presented the same body language of wanting to engage in play and attempted to entice him In a gameof chase, but the male did not reciprocate. She continued to sniff the yard when she met with a gentle/dainty female dog, herbody became more stiff with hackles up, stiff tail while hovering over her. The female corrected Spaghettio's for notrespecting her space and walked away. When the other female shifted around the yard, Spaghettio's began to follow her, again not respecting her space by hovering and was corrected by the handler. After thecorrection, Spaghettio's remained relaxed in the yard, attempting to solicit play from the other dogs in the yard and left theyard on a good note with no incidents.Spaghettio's is ok for public adoption. She is social with other dogs with a push/pull play style.

The shelter’s assessment indicates this girl is wonderful:

 Spaghettios was sleeping in front of the kennel when the runner arrived. The runner woke her up by gently calling to her and Spaghettios sat up and walked towards the runner. She had a neutral body, relaxed ears, slow tail wag, and eyes that appeared sad, yet soft. The runner placed her hand on the fence, but Spaghettios simply sat and stared at the runner and did not acknowledge at the fence.

The runner opened the kennel door and presented her leash, but Spaghettios stood up and walked to the back of the kennel avoiding the leash. She continued to avoid the leash requiring the runner to step inside and place the leash on her. She was able to be easily leashed and safely removed from the kennel. Once walking through the dog run, her body remained neutral as she walked well on the leash with the runner, bypassing the dogs on the way to the catch pen.

In the catch pen, she slowly approached the fence to greet the dogs with a neutral body and soft tail wag. She allowed the runner to place the collar with ease and was led into the yard…

Even though Spaghettios was wary of the male dog in the yard, just moments later she relaxed and wanted to play. She explored the play yard and when confronted by other dogs, became stiff, raised her hackles, but respected the dog and wanted to play.
