‘Playful’ dog has been overlooked at NC shelter for 500 days. She still needs a home

A ‘playful’ dog has spent more than 500 days at a North Carolina animal shelter – and still needs a home.

Anastasia, affectionately called ‘Ana’, loves car rides and loves to stuff tennis balls in her mouth. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of the Triad said the puppy has become a staff favorite since she was found abandoned.

“Ana was found tied to a porch alone after her family moved and abandoned her,” the Greensboro shelter wrote on Facebook on April 2. “Hard to imagine how confused and scared this young girl must have been.”

Ana first came to the shelter in May 2022 and was later adopted for about two months. But her owner returned her in October 2022, marking the beginning of her more than 500-day stay.

“She is such a great dog and would be the best friend for anyone,” Casey Crossan, a volunteer and board member, told McClatchy News in a telephone interview. “It just takes taking her out of our environment and a little bit of consistency and patience to build that trust.”

The SPCA believes Ana has been overlooked for more than a year because she is afraid of strangers and acts tough to keep new people away. She has a trainer and the animal organization hopes someone has the patience to get to know her.

“Although it takes Ana time to adjust to new people, once she becomes comfortable, she enjoys petting and affection from her circle of human friends,” the shelter wrote.

Crossan said the “playful” dog loves treats and is believed to be a 2- or 3-year-old American pit bull terrier. The shelter thinks she would do best in a home with older children and larger dogs.

As of April 3, Ana was still up for adoption. More details about the SPCA’s adoption process can be found at triadspca.org/adopt.
