Sienna, spayed female, 7yr. 25lb, Basenji Mix
Sienna lost her longtime human companion, and needs to be rehomed. She has been very well cared for since early puppyhood and is fully trained and very well socialized. Sienna would be ideal for an adopter that wants a well trained, intelligent dog. She may be 7 but she outruns dogs that are much younger! She loves being active, is great off leash, and is a real people pleaser.
Description by Foster Mom:
Sienna no longer has the nervous energy she had when she first joined us and has put on a few needed pounds. She loves walking daily (Stern Grove and Fort Fun), is great off leash, and once or twice a week in the evening we take her out again because she loves to be out and about. She is a bit shy, but warmed up to us fairly quickly and now loves to be with us. She is smart and learns quickly. Even though she is seven, she is very healthy and energetic. She is a great companion and I love having her in my home office every. She responds to gentle commands and is eager to please. I know she is the perfect dog for someone.
