New arrival

Foster dog #20

Hanna is a small 5-year-old rough sable and white female collie.  She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and is micro-chipped.  She is being surrendered because the couple who own her both are disabled and they feel bad for her because they are not able give her the care or exercise she deserves.  It breaks their hearts to give her up but they are thinking of her.
Hannah is a good dog who has had a couple levels of obedience training.  This small collie (40-45 lbs) is friendly toward people and ADORES children.  She is good with both dogs and cats.  She walks very nicely on a leash and rides well in a car.  Hannah is used to being around someone who uses a cane.  She does not chase cars or bicycles.  Her owner does not consider her a barker; she barks but not a lot.  Grooming is tolerated but she can be finicky when you brush her back-end or hit a snarl.  If loose in the yard she may leave the yard to go visiting especially if she hears or see children nearby. 
Hannah has no health issues and no fears/anxieties.

She's close by, too, so no transport needed. I'll get more details tomorrow and will probably be able to pick her up this weekend, if they're ready. 

Update on Lady: she's had her test for Addison's disease and it was negative! She helped her human brother move to college this past weekend.
