Tessa is a 2 year old girl who landed in a crowded rural shelter. She took one look around and knew she had to get out of there as quickly as possible. When our volunteer walked by, Tessa wagged and wiggled to introduce herself and earn her safe passage in the GSROC life boat.
At her first adoption event, Tessa was outgoing and curious. She enjoyed meeting other large dogs, but we are not sure about small dogs yet. Tessa exudes enthusiasm! She will need a family that is as active as she is, perhaps a jogger or a hiker, or a family with a swimming pool.
As we learn more about Tessa, we will update her profile. Please check back soon!
