Punkin was pulled from a high-kill shelter the day before she was scheduled to be put to sleep because the volunteers there worked so hard to save her. She's a super-happy little girl (about 40 pounds) who never met a person or a pup she didn't want to play with (we don't know about cats though.) She's still a puppy and jumps into any lap she can find, so she wouldn't be the best choice for a family with a young child. She's very protective and runs the fence a couple of times a day searching for burglars (or more likely lizards and squirrels) but doesn't bark a lot unless she sees a person.She understands that the older, sick dogs get special food and leaves their bowls alone until they walk away. She's perfectly housebroken, good on a leash, and somewhat crate-trained. She must go to either a home with a fenced yard, a doggie door or another dog who wants to play with her.
Her foster mom insists upon a home visit before an adoption is finalized but we will also provide transport within Florida.
