Will you be my loving forever family? I'm Lacie, and I am a sweet girl who would love to snuggle up with patient, devoted humans who will help me come out of my shell and blossom into the happy, confident girl I am meant to be. Although I can be shy, my foster momma says I have made great strides already and am learning all about how fun the world can be thanks to her encouragement. I've quickly learned, for example, how comfy a couch is and love to lounge like a little couch potato! I also enjoy sunbathing in the yard (a fenced yard would be a big bonus!) and following around the other dogs in my foster home. I adore other dogs and would love to have a canine buddy in my forever family who will help show me the ropes of my new life.

I enjoy being near my people - I don't beg to be the center of attention and am just happy to be close - and think I would do fine with older children who understand I like a calm environment while I settle in and feel safe. Once I am comfortable, I even enjoy snuggles on your cozy lap! I am already potty and crate trained; I will thrive with training classes to continue to work on my confidence and socialization skills so my adopters will need to sign me up for them. Classes will be a great opportunity for us to strengthen our bond and I am looking forward to seeing how much I can learn with you by my side. I am a super sweet, special girl who dreams about a happy life filled with love - if you can make my dreams come true, I hope you fill out an adoption application soon!

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.
