From the Foster: Chrissy is a shy, gentle , and loving dog and more than 6 months old. She is learning her name and about her new surroundings as she most likely spent most of her life so far in a kennel or crate having babies. She is getting used to human touch and cuddles; even starting to enjoy it:) Chrissy is not house trained, but each day she is improving and going potty outside more frequently. She enjoys exploring our fenced backyard and playing in the grass. The two resident dachshunds are teaching her how to enjoy being a dog, but it is all new and she is still learning. Chrissy frequently gets nervous and shakes when she encounters situations that are new to her, but she is becoming more confident each day in her new role as a part of the family.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
