Hi there, future family! My name is Lavish, and I am a lovely girl who is ready for a luxurious lifestyle filled with love and loads of tennis balls! I am a girl who loves fun just as much as I love settling down for some quiet time; my favorite activities include long walkies, playing catch with tennis balls, cuddles, belly rubs, and baths. My ideal home will also include a fenced yard since I like running and playing outside with my doggie friends. I am definitely an extrovert who loves to make new friends wherever I go, as well: I get along great with people of all ages (including kiddos) and other dogs. I have pretty good house manners, but like all young dogs I would benefit from training to fine-tune my manners and my adopters will need to sign me up for some classes. I am already potty trained, but should probably admit I like to peek at countertops for extra treats and am working on remembering to keep four paws on the ground. I am smart and obviously treat motivated, so I am sure I would be class valedictorian at training in no time! If you are looking for a girl who will always make you smile, you should definitely fill out an adoption application for me 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.
