Hi there! Thanks for stopping by to take a gander at my sweet smiling face! My name is Pumpkin and boy am I a sweetheart if I do say so myself. I really love to be around my people and am a very affectionate mixed breed girl who weighs about 45-50lbs. I was given the name Pumpkin because I was found as a stray (who was probably dumped) in October and I have a beautiful almost orange colored coat that made my foster home think of pumpkins! I was likely dumped because I had great house manners from day one in my foster home. I did not have any accidents and am not much of a jumper when it comes to people. The sad part is, when I was found I had a case of heartworms. But that is okay because the nice people at FCHS took me in and they told me that they were going to get me all better for my forever family. While the idea of a heartworm free life is a wonderful on, what I want even more than that is a family to call my very own.
I get along with all the dogs that I have been introduced to during my time in foster care and would be perfectly if I had to share my forever family with another fuzzy sibling as long as you promise me that I will be allowed to take a few naps curled up on your couch! I have been absolutely wonderful around children and am very gentle despite my size. I really Just want a home to call my own though just like all the other dogs told me about. Also, I am really good with kids, even the small ones so I am suited for a home with kids. I also will go ahead and say that I really do need a home with no cats since I tend to view them as a snack.
I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations. NO CATS. I am an alpha female.
My adoption fee is $225
