App. Birth: January 3, 2009
Abinia is a gorgeous black and tan Dobie mix who joined the welcoming committee a couple of years ago. She had been hanging around the outskirts of the sanctuary grounds for several days, too afraid to venture forth. Seemingly, Stewie Peterson, one of our permanent residents, met her at the boundary and "talked" with her about sanctuary life. Shortly after, she joined the pack. She remains wary of newcomers and is often the first to sound the bark of alert. The other animals have welcomed her presence though, and with time and patience, she is learning that she can let her guard down.
