NEW GIRL IN: Hi my name is Maisie and I’d like to introduce my gorgeous self. I am a 3 yrs. old larger tri sheltie weighing in at 46.8 lbs. My foster home has me on a strict diet to get my “girly” figure back into check and giving me lots of exercise playing ball and frisbee. I think my foster Dad finally figured out that I don’t like bringing the frisbee back, so now he has to throw one and keep another one hidden in his hand, lol ! I love playing games !!! My veterinarian would like my weight in the 38-40 lb. range, so I guess I have a LOT of playing to do along with my new strict diet. Did I say I love to play in the yard, well, I do and I also love children, but older children, not the younger ones who don’t have the training in “how to treat a dog protocol”. Everyone I’ve met since coming into Rescue says “I’m a LOVEBUG”. I don’t know what that means but it seems to make everyone smile from ear to ear once they meet me. I guess that’s a good thing, right? I am completely vetted and ready to find my forever loving home. If you feel that you might be that home and the Rescue feels that I would fit your home with all my cuteness and love to fill your heart, please go to the Rescue’s website at www.wpasr.org and fill out an application for adoption.
