I am a beautiful 8-year-old girl looking for my forever home.  I have so many wonderful qualities that I hope you will fall in love with and want to meet me.  I love everyone that I meet, including small children and never jump up to greet anyone.  I have absolutely perfect house manners, no accidents or chewing and I know sit, down, come, wait, leave it, and many other commands.  I am so cooperative to anything you need to do to me like wiping my wet paws or grooming or bathing.  I am very quiet in the house.

I love to go for rides in the car and can get in and out all by myself and I also have been very lucky to go on boat rides which are a lot of fun.  I love to be with my people and will be your faithful companion.

I sometimes have ear infections and mild allergies, but I take some medication that helps keep them under control.  I also take thyroid medication since my thyroid doesn’t work.  I am still trying to lose a lot of weight so my new family will need to continue to help me get my girlish figure back.  Foster mom and dad have taken me for lots of walks and make sure I don’t get too much food.  I am a big girl weighing in at about 100 pounds, and my ideal weight should be about 70 pounds.

Other dogs scare me so I need to be in a home all by myself.  On walks, I have learned to trust foster mom and dad to help me feel safe when other dogs go by.  I used to lunge and bark and get upset, but they have taught me so much and will show a new family what works for me to take nice walks.

If you are looking for a wonderful, sweet companion that you want to give all of your love and attention to, then I am your girl.  Everyone who meets me thinks I am the perfect girl.  I hope you will come and meet me.
