From the Foster:
Melanie is an extremely sweet and funny dog. She is a total cuddle bug and loves to snuggle. She is very loving and very happy. She has loved playing with our dogs outside in the yard. She has plenty of energy to run around and play, but settles back into snuggling on the couch once she is inside. She is house-trained and hasn't had any accidents! She is mostly crate trained, though she would much rather be roaming the house. No issues with chewing on furniture or anything. Having toys and bones to play with has been helpful to keep her occupied.
She is fantastic with other dogs! She loves to play but backs off when the other dog doesn't want to. She LOVES the dog park! She also loves people and has been friendly to everyone she has met. She would do really well in a house that has another dog to play with.
We can't wait for Melanie to find her forever home, she has so much love to give!
