    They call me the: Calm Gentle Black Beauty!

    My humans can’t believe how quiet and calm I am, and how easy going I can be. I don’t play too often with toys because I spend my time following you around the house all day. Other times I simply lay on my bed and watch you, sleep, or just chill. I like to stay near my humans very much, and I get along great with children. I can be a little shy at first, but once I trust you I am open to a belly rub or a scratch any time you are willing.

    I am completely house trained. I have not had one single accident while living with my fosters. Everyone brags about how good of a girl I am!

    I love going on walks. I am smart enough to figure out when you are getting ready for a walk, and will wait at the front door eager to go on an adventure with you. I love smelling and exploring the outdoors, new environments and getting exercise. I am good on a leash, but can be defensive when meeting other dogs without proper introduction. When walking I will simply watch the squirrels and birds when they get my attention, but tend to pull a fair bit when I see a rabbit.

    I love my food, and I mean LOVE MY FOOD! Mealtime does not come soon enough and I always eat everything on my plate. My fosters can put their hands near my bowl and that doesn’t bother me when I am eating. I tend to eat too fast though, so my fosters have given me a puzzle bowl to eat from so that I slow down my eating, allowing me to taste and enjoy my food. When you give me a bone, I may choose to hide it instead of eating it right away as I’m still worried about tomorrow’s meal.

    I get along great with my foster family’s dog and we play outside a lot together. I am very easy to get along with and love being a part of a family, and hope that I can be a part of your family ‘fur’ever!!!

    I am your gentle calm ‘furever’ girl!
