Foster update 11/2019: Cinnamon is such a sweet girl! We wish we could adopt her ourselves, but she and our dog both like to play the alpha role. Cinnamon is a fantastic girl and will make a wonderful companion for a family or couple. She knows lots of basic commands and is very loving. She would do best as the only dog or with another canine in the home who is not crazy active and more on the submissive side. She does not like to have another dog in her food or water bowl, so we gave each dog their own:) We are so sad we cannot keep her for a longer time. Her new owners will be very lucky to call Cinnamon their own!
CINNAMON IS NOW HEARTWORM NEGATIVE!! ANOTHER SUCCESS WITH THE SLOW KILL METHOD!!
Cinnamon is definately one of the staff favorites here at the facility. This gentle girl has a very calm, quiet demeanor and loves nothing more than to take naps and cuddle. Since her puppies have all been adopted, Cinnamon has been able to relax and let her sweet personality shine. This sweet girl has gone out for Dog 4 a Day more than anyone else and everyone just adores her, but she still sits at the shelter waiting for someone to love her enough to give her a forever home. If you would like to take Cinnamon into your home and your heart, please submit an application so she no longer has to sit in the shelter while other dogs get adopted around her.
Cinnamon and her family of 4 babies were rescued from a kill shelter where they would have euthanized this healthy family. We got them to perfect health, spayed and neutered, and shots. They are now available for their forever homes.
Cinnamon is such a sweet girl! She is very calm and loving. She loves to go for walks. She is best with calmer, submissive dogs here at the shelter. She is crate trained and very well behaved.
Cinnamon is heartworm positive but that should not prevent her from finding her forever home. At time of adoption you will be supplied with literature regarding our slow kill method. Any questions regarding heartworms please call us. We also recommend that if you are not familiar with heartworms to speak to your veterinarian about the slow kill method.
We noticed Cinnamon was showing an abnormal walk. We took her to the vet and took X-rays. They believe she had an old injury that did not heal properly. They cannot do surgery, but the vet says she will need to be on an anti-inflamatory medication daily for the rest of her life.
INFORMATION: CINNAMON NEEDS TO BE ON DASOQUIN, JOINT MOBILITY FOOD AND RIMADYL. NO CATS PLEASE
We left the rescue and stopped at the store on the way home. She was very calm with myself and the kids while we waited in the car. She was perfectly house trained. She was very calm all day and loved attention from the kids. She loved toys and was perfectly okay with the kids playing with her and her toys. She was very gentle. Overall, she is a great dog and we really enjoyed having her today. She is very deserving of a loving home and family.
DOG 4 A DAY / FOSTER UPDATE NOVEMBER 19th 2018. She stayed with this foster for a week : "Cinnamon is so sweet. She is very affectionate, loves attention and loves her toys (especially the large stuffed animals). She will play fetch but really only chases after the ball and plays with it herself. She doesn't like being alone but is okay sleeping on her own at night. She loves being outside. She will sit in the yard for a wile just looking around and enjoying the view. She wasn't nervous around the pool, but had no desire to go in it. She warms up to new people well. She will sit if she saw you had food but needs some practice on her basic commands. She didn't have any potty accidents for the entire time she was with me, so that was a great bonus!"
DOG 4 A DAY update August 25: Cinnamon is a really sweet and well behaved dog. She walks pretty well on a leash and enjoyed the car ride home after she figured out how to sit in the seat. When I brought her in the door, she immediately ran to my family with her tail wagging to meet them. We introduced her to my other dog (a male ~15-19 pound Multipoo). She got along well with him and they played in the yard together. Cinnamon is a really laid-back and calm dog. She adjusted to being in my house right away and liked to just lay on the floor and look out the window. If I got up or went outside, she would follow me, but she really was just content to be near me. When she was outside, she would be very energetic for short periods of time while playing. She would play for a few minutes and then she would be tired of running and just enjoy walking outside or head back inside. She drank a lot of water but never had any problems with accidents in the house. Cinnamon is the most quiet dog I have ever had at my house. I only heard her bark once when she was playing with the other dog. She did not bark at neighbors even when my dog was barking at them. Cinnamon may not do well with cats. She is definitely too eager to meet them. At Pet Rescue by Judy and at my house with my cats, she would try to get to them even if we held her back or if they were in another room. I doubt that she would have hurt them if she was able to reach them- she probably just wanted to sniff them, but she was not able to leave the cats alone if they were near her. Cinnamon fit in at my house right away and my dog loved spending time with her. We were sad to take her back.
Dog for a day 9/12/2018: My husband and I had a great day with Cinnamon for the Dog for a Day program. She was so very calm and sweet the whole time. She rode great in the car and enjoyed looking out the window. We spent the day with her at our home where she spent a lot of time looking around and playing with her toys. In the yard she loved to chase after lemons from our tree and also roll in the grass. She kept close to me a lot. For such a young dog we were amazed at how quiet and well-behaved she was. She really has a sweet personality. She did try a couple times to get on the couch with me but it wasn't a problem telling her no or off. I can tell she is a people-pleaser and I think would be a breeze to train. I hope Cinnamon gets the loving home she deserves.
Dog for a Day (9/3-4/2018):
Cinnamon was wonderful. She is so soft and loving. Cinnamon was introduced to me in the play room. She warmed up to me very quickly but, I did bribe her with a few treats. She was lying in my lap and giving me kisses in just a few minutes.
On day one:
She rode well in the car. Cinnamon looked happy in the front seat but, she seemed to prefer stretching out in the backseat after a few minutes of driving. We visited another dog lover and Cinnamon was again kind and affectionate. We took a walk with our new friend and Cinnamon seemed to prefer walking on the pavement except to relieve herself. She is well house trained and never had an accident while she was with me. Cinnamon and I left our friend behind and drove to the walkway along Lake Monroe. Initially we sat on a bench but, the temperature had dropped a little with a light afternoon shower so we took a walk. Cinnamon was interested in every person we came across. She just wanted to go up to everyone and say hello. I didn't feel like I knew her well enough to navigate too many other people that first day so we mostly kept our distance. Cinnamon was very excited to see a few squirrels. She really pepped up when it started pouring. I was very impressed at how little she pulled on her leash even when she tried to chase a squirrel that ran across her front paws. That squirrel was the only time she made a noise. Cinnamon is just a very quiet dog.
On day two:
Cinnamon did so well that I took her out again the next day. We repeated vising our friend; lounging around inside and going for short walks outside. Cinnamon found three gopher tortoise burrows on one of these walks. On the way back, we again stopped for a walk by Lake Monroe. And again, she wanted to say hi to everyone. By this time, I was more comfortable we could do so without problems. Cinnamon got lots of complements on her appearance and a few people even stopped to pet her.
Overall, Cinnamon spent much of her time stretched out on the floor or in my lap relaxing but, I suspect she may gain a little more energy after she completes her heartworm treatment. She has a very lovely personality and, I found myself missing her company after I dropped her off.
