Running around a big fenced yard is one of Bridget's favorite things as long as people are with her. Her foster mom says she is a “velcro dog.” But she doesn’t have to be playing every minute. She is quiet and will rest at her humans’ feet when it's time to settle down. She sleeps in a big crate and is quiet as a mouse all night long. This friendly girl loves to go for rides in the car as well as walks wearing her harness. She never chews anything she is not supposed to, but she loves her Kong Bone, especially with peanut butter stuffed inside.
Bridget has a good appetite but she tends to eat too fast, so she has a special slow-eat bowl so she won’t gobble her food. As long as Bridget doesn’t have to go too long without a potty break, you can count on her reliable housetraining. She's been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is ready for her new home.
As much as her foster family loves her and she loves them, Bridget wants a person of her own who will be around a lot. Could that be you?
