I am already spayed and housetrained.
*This dog is on a medical hold and cannot go home yet but can be visited and placed on hold for adoption*
**A volunteer spending time with Bertha had this to say "She is so loving towards new people and is so easy to handle!"**
Do you like other dogs? I have quite the mixed history with dogs, but I would be willing to meet a new friend as long as they are mellow and respect my space.
What do you think about cats? I could go home with dog-savvy cats but I may be too much for most cats.
So how do you do with kids? I have a good history with kids, and could go home with any age kids as long as they're gentle.
How do you feel about walking on a leash? I love to go for leash walks and you will see that I need them daily.
How would you describe your energy level? I have a medium energy level.
What are some of your favorite hobbies? Snuggles, walks, and being by your side!
How much do you weigh? I weigh about 96 pounds.
How old are you? I am about 7 years old.
What qualities are you looking for in a human? I am looking for a semi-active person who doesn’t mind a 90 pound dog snuggling up to them after a nice adventure!
My adoption fee includes my spay/neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more!
ADOPTION INFORMATION: Please note that in order to make the best match possible, potential adopters must come to Greenhill in person to meet with an animal, as well as kennel staff, to complete the adoption process. All members of the household (including other dogs) should be present to ensure the chosen dog is compatible with everyone.
