Dog training graduate wants to show you how well she behaves


By Claire Cornish

Typically this feature is called “Dog of the Week”, but when it comes to the beautiful Miss Scarlett, it certainly means “Dog of a Lifetime”.

This easy-going girl is everyone’s favorite, but she’s spent her life bouncing from place to place, never finding anyone who would give her the love and commitment she so desperately needs and that she deserves.

When Miss Scarlett arrived at the shelter, she became a favorite with staff and volunteers. She was also chosen as a temporary foster puppy by a few families who wanted to welcome a friendly and trouble-free dog for a month.

Being popular is good, but Miss Scarlett got fed up with always being brought home by people who always intended to bring her back to the shelter after a while.

As adorable, kind, and well-meaning as they were, Miss Scarlett knew they weren’t “her people,” and each time her confidence was shaken a little more.

Over the summer she was selected for a training program called Pawsitive Directions, which pairs Department of Corrections approved inmates with needy rescue dogs. They even trained dogs for those affected by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School shooting.

The inmate becomes the master of the dog and the two learn to trust each other. Now Miss Scarlett is finishing her training with a plethora of commissions and talent under her belt and has almost all the credits she needs for her Canine Good Citizen Certificate.

All she needs now is a home. She’s laid back and low on energy, happy to play and run, but just as happy to sit on the couch, take a nap, or take a car ride with you. She is trained at home and in charge and would fit right into your life as if she had always been there.
