I am a very active, energetic girl who needs more training and lots of stimulation to keep me out of trouble.  I will need someone who is home a lot that can supervise me and take me to positive reinforcement obedience classes.  I would love a job, like agility.  I get along well with other dogs and love to play, but I don’t really know when to stop.  My foster mom has worked really hard with me and taking me to classes and I am starting to get better with my puppy behaviors.  I can be jumpy and mouthy, but that is improving.  I will still need someone that will help me learn my manners.  Do you have the energy and the time to be my forever family?

Female, 11 months old

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; 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 as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
