Introducing the adorable Gretta (A24400881)! This little brindle beauty is a 1-2 year old terrier mix, weighing about 35lbs. Gretta is on the smaller side and has the personality of a gentle old soul. She's very low-key and calm and absolutely loves to be around any of the volunteers because cuddling is one of her favorite pastimes. Being around other friendly dogs also makes her really happy. She's been tolerant and calm with other dogs on walk alongs and seems to feel better with them - she sticks close to her favorite dogs while walking and often checks in to see where they went. She listens very well to her volunteer friends and already knows basic commands. She also seems to be housetrained and rides great in the car! This little sweetheart is as close to perfect as you can get and while the shelter is a loud, scary place for such a gentle little girl, she knows that the perfect family is out there for her so she's waiting patiently. Please don't make little Gretta wait much longer - she deserves a family of her own. Please come meet Gretta today!
