Personality Color: orange

Orange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!

Bio data

Hiya hiya! I’m Evie, an energetic girl who LOVES peanut butter. I am about 2 years old, weigh around 49 pounds, and have been at the shelter since December 12th. People around APS take good care of me but I really can’t wait to sit and watch the flowers bloom with someone of who I can call my forever family. I’m busy and inquisitive and love a good squeaky ball and toy. While I have lots of energy, I have to go on calm walks because I’ve got this thing called heartworm. All I know is that I just want to run and play to my hearts content once my treatment is done. Come meet me today and I know we’ll be best friends.

Kids: 10+, excitable, hard to settle, jumpy, food guarding

Dogs: dog selective, recommend dog-dog intro

Heartworm positive – APS is currently offering no cost heartworm treatment through a foster to adopt period. Have questions? Email or call 919-560-0640.

Evie is spending some time in foster, here’s what the humans have to say about her:

“She is an easy, quiet, relatively small dog, who can probably pass for a black lab mix.  She would be a great apartment dog.  Evie doesn’t much like the rain, but she sure looks adorable in a hot pink thunder vest.  She knows her name and has great recall. She also knows sit and leave it. She is a good loose leash walker. When not training, she really likes to cuddle, sleep on a soft bed or chew on a nylabone. And she is getting along nicely with my resident dogs — they all like having their own personal space bubble. She also seems to adore our cat, tried very hard to follow her out the car door and got surprisingly far. Evie is delightful about most everything. She stayed at our house for a couple of days to relax and to start to recover from her heart worm treatment. She is a very sweet and snuggly girl, who loves belly rubs. She seems to do really well by herself and is extremely quiet. She didn’t even bark when my resident dogs barked. Evie got along well with my kids, dogs and cat. She doesn’t seem reactive to anything. She seems thoroughly house broken and crate trained. In the car, she wants to help drive, so she does need a seatbelt or car pet barrier. She really likes to explore and will make a super hiking companion when feeling better. Even my husband, who is not a dog person, declared Evie to be an easy, nice dog.”
