Oh, Darling, please believe me: I would love to be your best furry friend and wiggle my way into your heart! As my name implies, I am an adorable sweetheart who is happiest when enjoying time with my people. I am a great blend of fun, active, and snuggly: I love being outside enjoying long walks and adventures to explore, playing with toys, and then curling up on the couch, bed, or cozy rug in the sunshine for a nice nap. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends, and I would do good with kids who enjoy playtime as much as I do. I also get along with other dogs, though I prefer gentle introductions to know I am safe. I am already potty trained, and I prefer an open space with a comfy dog bed instead of a crate when you need to leave the house for a while for human duties. I behave myself while you are gone and do not get into anything I shouldn't while I eagerly await your return. My biggest dream is a place where I can truly feel at home with people to love (and who will give me lots of neck kisses and belly rubs!) If that sounds like you, I hope you fill out an adoption application today!

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.
