Every Wednesday we feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin from Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Aries!

attachment-Aries 2

One of the most overlooked dogs at the Sanctuary sadly!  Aries is a six-year-old dog that has spent 4 years at the Sanctuary.  That is more than half her life!  The staff's best guess on her breed is a Boxer mix.  Aries loves people and is happy to cuddle with staff.  She absolutely loves to go on walks and would be a great buddy for a person looking to have a dog for companionship.  She also enjoys car rides! Aries is selective when it comes to other dogs.  She doesn't really play with other dogs but can co-exist with a select few at the shelter.  Aries has been known to dig so her adopter would need to make sure to watch her while in the backyard.  She is more comfortable around older children so Aries shouldn't go to a home with children under 10 years of age.   Like all the larger breed dogs at the Sanctuary, Aries adopters need to live in a house with a fenced-in yard.  If you are looking for a companion dog who will love you unconditionally, come meet Aries!  Please join us in spreading the word about this amazing dog so she doesn't have to spend one more year of her life without a home and a person or people to give her the love and attention she deserves!

Once home, remember the rule of three: three days to decompress, three weeks to get used to your routine and home, and three months to feel completely at home.
