Adult Aka Mya - Female Akbash Mix

This is Mya. Until she came to the SPCA she had led a harder life than such a precious dog deserves. As a result we are looking for a home that will commit to spending lots of time with her. She needs a calm and consist situation to thrive. While she looks like a Retriever she is an Akbash X which has a different temperament. Akbash Dogs are livestock protectors who are independent. They are not herding dogs as of is thought they are low energy contemplative dogs. Playing fetch or ball is not really their thing. She is not a kid s companion pet. As they will take on predators it is best if there is more than dog of a similar breed if they are to be used for watching a herd. Otherwise Mya would be better as an dog in an full grown home. Mya really enjoys just hanging out with her people and loves to be petted. If you spend lots time on a computer or at a hobby she likes to lay at your feet. Before coming to the shelter Mya was not let indoors she is really enjoying the change. Her experiences as an outside dog were not nice so we rather she not go back to that life. With positive encouragement she has shown so much improvement and is adapting very well to her new life. If you feel that you could help her along this path at the Shuswap shelter.
