Big, black, beautiful Bonnie: Bonita (Bonnie) is still looking for her forever home. Bonnie was rescued at 8 months old from the perrera in Baza by Amethyst dog rescue. Bonnie is now 2 years old. She is fortunatly free of the usually Med diseases and is a healthy dog. She is shy when it comes to meeting people and this is one of the reasons she hasn’t been snapped up yet.
She is a good guard dog in the house. She is house trained and she is sterilised.
Bonnie is best suited to a Campo house with a garden as she loves the outdoors she is nervous around traffic and noise although she is improving. She’s a cat chaser so a house without cats would be better.
Would you like to meet Bonnie. Do you have the patients to make friends with her? could you be the one to earn her trust as we as fosterers have?
