Hi there, future family! My name is Shallow, and I am a lovely lady with deep affection for the people I let into my world. I would do best with dog-savvy humans who understand that I live life on my own terms. I can be selective about who I decide to let in my inner circle, but if I decide you can be my friend, I am a loyal, fun bff! I enjoy the finer things in life like lounging by your side and going for leisurely walks around the neighborhood (I have some minor arthritis and take joint supplements that help, but I am not as fast as I used to be!), and also quite enjoy outdoor activities such as boating and dipping my paws in the water with my foster family at their lake house. I would prefer an adult-only home, or older teenagers if you have kids, because everyone needs to understand that while I love to be by your side I am not the kind of dog who likes hugs, kisses, or people clinging on me. I am cat friendly with calm felines who will not get in my face, but I would do best as your one and only dog since I like your attention on me. I would also prefer a home with a grassy yard so I can sunbathe and play with my favorite squeaky toys.

I have excellent manners and make a great roommate: I'm potty trained and can hold it up to 7-8 hours. My ideal forever home will have someone home frequently because I love to be near my humans, but if you need to leave the house for a while I am content to nap and wait for your return. I even know a few commands including sit, come, and lay down, and I dont beg to get on furniture. I dream about an understanding family who will lounge around with me on lazy weekends and enjoy the great outdoors on occasional adventures. If that sounds like you, please fill out an adoption application soon because I have been waiting a long time for you!
