About Arissa

Hello there families! My name is Arissa! 

I’m an outgoing, highly intelligent gal, who’s looking for my furever home! 

I’ve been in foster care since last spring, and although this may seem sad it’s given me the opportunity to learn a lot. My fosters have done an amazing job dedicating their time to training me, and helped to build trust and social skills with other dogs. I’m very energetic and love playing with other dogs, toys and play equipment. I think I’m quite the young athlete if I do say so myself! 

I learned pretty quickly that when my foster’s head out the door in the morning, they are indeed coming back. I’m comfortable hanging out with the resident dog and don’t mind his company. I’m a smart cookie so fair warning, don’t leave any food or garbage out while you’re gone because I will attempt to find myself a little snacky snack! 

From spending a day hiking to sleeping at your feet while you work from  home, I’m content to just be by your side. I’m friendly with all people, old and young. I know my foster family is proud of my growth, and I can’t thank them enough for all that they’ve done for me. They’ve given me the hope that one day I will find my very own family, where we can learn and grow more together! 

If you’re looking for an affectionate companion that has all the love to share, I’m your girl. Apply to meet me today! -xo Arissa
