We first met Greta when we were visiting Memphis Animal Services (city pound) just before Christmas.
Greta was hiding under her water bowl in her kennel (pictured) and wanted nothing more than for us to pass her by, the loud noises and all the smells were terrifying to her and she wanted to disappear. We carried Greta to a "meet and greet room" and set her on the bench next to us. She was so sweet, yet it was obvious that the kind touch of a human was foreign to her.
It's been amazing watching Greta learn to be a companion, and it's her turn to find a family now. She is fostered with 3 other dogs(both big and small) and is wonderful and playful with them. She adores other animals and we would say another canine companion is a requirement for her to be her happiest. She loves to play, but mostly enjoys lounging with her best friends. Greta would be most comfortable in a quiet home without a lot of activity, with someone who can really spend time with her. While Greta is very friendly with children, and is fostered with them now we do think she would do best in a home with no children or older children simply because all of the commotion that comes with little ones. She will come out of her shell much quicker in a quiet environment where her personality really shines. Greta is a young girl, only a year or so old and she is house trained and crate trained.
Greta's adoption fee is $500 and includes all of her yearly vaccines, fecal exams, negative heartworm test, current heartworm prevention(pro-heart 6), microchip, spay surgery, and transport from Memphis to your area. If you are interested in being Greta's forever, please email us at email@example.com for an application.
