Ciao! My name is Anellini, and I am a sweet noodle who is looking for a family that will have lots of time to spend with me! I get anxious on my own, so I would do best in a home where people are with me often. I am a happy-go-lucky lady who matches the energy of my family: if you wanna play I can be silly and active, and if you wanna relax I am very happy to be a content couch potato. I'm a friendly gal: I am playful with other doggies, good with cats, and even previously lived with young children! Some of my favorite activities include going for walkies, playing in the snow, and chewing on strong, durable toys. I am potty trained and working on crate training: I am fine resting in mine with the door open when my people are around but am trying to learn to relax when my foster family runs errands, too. I would benefit from a family that will commit to working on further training with me: I'm pretty darn smart already but think some classes could help me work on my separation anxiety. If you are looking for a furry friend who will always be by your side, I am definitely the girl for you!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
