Contessa, also known as Tess, is a beautiful gray and white Persian / DLH mix female that was born approximately 11/23/07. NBCR originally rescued her from a local animal shelter and was recently returned because her owner is getting married and moving to California to start a family.
Tess is a very sweet natured girl who is a little on the shy side at first. She loves to be brushed and will perform all sorts of yoga poses to ensure that every spot gets it's due attention. During the day, she enjoys taking a nap under the bed and then comes out to check out what's going on outside by looking out the window. At night, Tess is used to sleeping with her owner and would enjoy that in her new home. She is talkative and likes to make biscuits in your lap. In her previous home, Tess was not around young kids or dogs and would probably prefer a quieter type of home. She has been declawed, is a real beauty and will make someone a nice pet.
Tess is in a foster home and her adoption fee is $95.
