My name is Relish. I spend most of my days lounging near whichever human will give me the most love. If you are busy, I don't mind, I will patiently wait nearby and when you give me "the look" well.... any look, I will come back for my belly rub. Sometimes I get a little jealous of other dogs, but they are still my friends. I love kids because they tend to love me, who wouldn't? I am really smart, I taught myself to go in the kennel when my foster mom stands by it, I also pride myself on going to the bathroom outside. See that's the beauty of adopting a dog like me, I am not a puppy, but I am potty trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I am a little shy at first, but after one day with someone, I fall completely in love with them and become their little shadow. In my free time I like to run towards the chickens (but then run away), charge the goats (but then run away), cuddle with the cats, and play with the dogs. Above all things though I just love people and the attention they give me. I just want a lap to lay in, If your lap is available, please complete an application.
