Animal Allies: Ariel

Created: March 05, 2020 09:09 AM

Ariel is a sweet and lively dog who loves to explore, but that wasn't always the case. 


Nicole Facciotto, with Animal Allies, said when she first arrived, she was very scared.

"She hid in the back of her kennel and even getting her out to go potty was really really hard," Facciotto said. 

They sent her to the inmate training program at the Moose Lake Prison and she came back more outgoing and excited to explore.

"She's just totally come out of her shell and is really smart and super eager to learn," Facciotto.

Ariel showed off a few tricks including sitting and laying down.  

Facciotto said Ariel's ready for a calm patient home that will let her settle in and continue her training.  They'll get two free months of follow-up training.
