Hello! I am available for adoption and my Bio/Story is coming soon.

I'm a very happy-go-lucky girl when I am with my people - I am always happy to see you! Even though I'm older I'm very quick, love to go on walks, and happy to be wherever you are. Nothing would make me happier than to find a family to devote myself to! You won’t find a more dedicated, loving companion.

I get along with people and other dogs, but due to my size and temperament I would not do well with young kids. I am good on outings but my favorite thing to do is to hang out and watch TV on the couch with my peeps. I'm not really into toys but I LOVE playing with my human.

Sometimes I get itchy and need some special care, some of it is anxiety related and intensifies at night. I sometimes drink excessively and want to finish a full bowl of water every time you give me one.

Because my anxiety spikes after dusk I can get a little anxious around bed time and start running around looking for more water and comfort. Sleeping next to my human is the only way to calm me down, so I would absolutely need to sleep with my human in the same bed.

Once I fall asleep I sleep through the night with no issues as long as I am on the bed, but if I'm on the dog bed or the couch I might. Otherwise I am potty trained and I've had no accidents other than the night time ones.

I was ultimately abandoned but found by a lovely couple who desperately tried to find me a new home. In the end they got me to the rescue who is working to find me a great new home!

If you would like to get to know more about me NOW, just fill out the super quick application and an adoption counselor will be in touch!

Due to home introductions that are part of the adoption process, we can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near North County, San Diego, California at this time.
