  • A Little About Me: I may be a little nugget but I am full of spice. I am one sassy little gal who is fearful and timid at first when I meet people. I take some time to trust and feel comfortable. I may be small but that does not mean that I want to be carried every way, because I don’t. I love going for walks and I enjoy pets once I feel comfortable. I am a special adoption and ready to go to a home that will accept me for all my quirks. I am very sweet and adorable so if you are willing to go very slow and give me time to feel comfortable I would love to be your new family pet.

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 into 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.
