I am a sweet little lady who prefers spending quiet cuddle time next to a nice person on a soft couch. I’m looking for a quiet laid back sort of a family, who will treat me gently and kindly. I would prefer to be the only dog in the home, but I may be ok with another dog that will give me some space and not be pushy and jumpy. I’m mostly not interested in any kind of social interaction with other dogs. I do enjoy going for walks and getting to sniff the great outdoors. I hope to find my next home soon, perhaps you are the one? My favorite activity is playing tug. I tend to express my excitement vocally. Staff here cracks up and they love me. Ask a staff person to bring me out so you can see what a sweetie I am.
