  • A Little About Me: I have quite a story that does not start out well. I am very shy and timid when I first meet people and do not come out of my shell right away. I am specifically looking for a family that understands I will not show well in the shelter environment and with consistency and love I will thrive in a home environment. I would prefer to go to a home with other dogs as I really enjoy their company and they help me come out of my shell. I am also shy with other dogs at first but I come out much quicker with my canine pals. I am a special gal, with a special background looking for a special family that will treat me like the cherished family pet I deserve to be treated like. You can schedule an appointment to me by emailing sacramentocountydogs@gmail.com. Give me a chance, I am well worth it!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
