CinCin (Cinnamon Bear)
January 2014- This gorgeous, mahogany-red "Cinnamon Bear" (a.k.a. CinCin) is 10 years old, spayed, and weighs about 65 lbs. She gets along well with other dogs and is also great with cats. She is housebroken and crate-trained. Cinny was abandoned as a 12- to 16-week-old puppy and did not seem to see very well. A veterinary exam showed that CinCin appears to see normally with her left eye, but has only minimal sight in her right eye but the eye is clear, so the cause is unknown. She does bump into things at times, though. CinCin is the only dog we've ever seen wag her tail up and down all the time, like a pump handle; never back and forth, or in a circle as other dogs do. She is very good-natured and gentle, although she is very timid. She does, however, have one big quirk: Refusing to walk or even move if you put a collar or leash on her! She will literally lie down and roll onto her side. We had to carry her to the car when she had a dental, then carry her into the vet hospital to the back (where she immediately sat up to investigate new smells). Later that day when she was picked up, three employees carried her out to the car! The vet asked if she could walk, because the stinker refused to walk for them all day! Talk about being waited on; what a character! Cinny obviously needs a Special forever person or family, and because she is very timid, we require that her adopter(s) get to know her here first- and that could take more than a few visits. She's also available as a Sponsor Dog; please see our Home Page for information about our Sponsor Program.
