Welcome to the good life Clare! Clare, Scoop and Winnie were all confiscated from a neglect situation where they lived outside in a pen together with limited/no other care. We are so grateful that these sweet souls found their way to IBR.

When Clare entered rescue, she was in rough shape physically and emotionally.  But, our Miss Clare has blossomed in her 4 weeks in IBR care – and she’s ready to meet her forever family!

With the addition of lots of healthy food and regular walks, her coat is glowing, her eyes are bright and she’s feeling playful. She now roams her foster family’s house and back yard, interacts with their two dogs peacefully and is a busy and inquisitive member of the family.  She is happiest underfoot, and she likes to come over and “check on” her foster family members every few minutes, looking for some reassurance and a quick scratch. She will continue to be a bit cautious and shy, and her adopting family will need to be careful to minimize loud noises, unexpected experiences, and let her observe quietly before joining in. Once comfortable, however, she’s a couch buddy who loves to cuddle and watch TV, sit outside in the evening and watch the sunset, or just hang out while someone does laundry or chores.

Clare loves walks, and goes on two each day with her foster mom. Her leash manners are remarkable, and she really enjoys seeing the neighborhood dogs and joggers on our route. She rides well in the car, recently discovered the joys of drive-thru treats, which she heartily endorses.

It took a while to get Clare interested in food, but she is now first in line for her bowl at breakfast and dinner. She sleeps in her own quiet space, and stays quiet until we wake her in the morning – this girl is a good sleeper!

Because of her difficult background, Clare should be in a family with no young children.
