Here is a current update from her foster family: 'We LOVE this girl. She loves to be with people. Licorice is sweet, cuddly, energetic, very smart and a great watch dog. My son hides her toys in the sofa behind the cushion and tells her 'Dive, Licorice!' All you can see is her back-end sticking up as she passionately hunts for her hidden toy. Licorice is quite the entertainer!!! Licorice is quite a dog. She is a sweet, loving, attention seeking cuddle bug dog and so much more. Licorice is house trained, walks well on a leash, and can even open our patio door. She gets along great with our other dog, but can be a bit of a toy hog. Licorice loves to play hide & seek, run around the yard with anyone and play fetch. This black beauty is super smart and would make a wonderful addition to any type of family. She knows the commands sit, stay and lie down. She has not been tested with cats.'
Licorice is a 44 pound girl who was found stray. She was good with other dogs at the shelter and participated in our shelter dog playgroup.
