Yard requirements: A fenced-in yard is advisable, as Susie has a strong prey drive and could be prone to running off in pursuit of squirrels, birds, or other critters.

Kids: Best with older children.

Dogs and cats: Good with other dogs, but has not been tested with cats.

Health issues: None.

Her story: Susie was picked up as a stray by Cabarrus County Animal Control in Concord, North Carolina. Luckily, BTRTC pulled her from the shelter just in time!

Her ideal forever home: Susie would do well with a dog-savvy, moderately active human who enjoys going for walks as much as she does. Because she’s so strong, she would do best with a canine sibling around her same size.

Other details prospective adopters should know: Susie Q demonstrates mild food aggression, which is easily managed by feeding her in her crate. While BTRTC typically restricts its adoptions to people who live in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia, they are willing to consider applications from a perfect forever family who lives outside of the southeastern region.
