****I AM A HIDDEN GEM****

Hello there. You might think that my name is pretty silly. I think they spelled it with a "y" so that you wouldn’t confuse me with a real bird, although I really don’t see how there could be any uncertainty. After all, birds are usually small and light enough to fly. Me? I weigh 118lbs and have been told that I’m quite large. Despite my size, the staff and volunteers here at the Humane Rescue Alliance say that I’m a gentle lady who is very easy to walk. Speaking of walks, I absolutely love going for strolls in the park with the volunteers here—sniffing new things is one of my favorite activities! Although I’ve had lots of fun making new friends here, I’m ready to find a home to call my own. I would be happiest in a calm, quiet home where I could find some big comfy places to settle down and take a nap. Do I sound like the one for you? Come meet me today!

As a Hidden Gem, I get my very own volunteers who spend extra time with me and work with me on basic training needs. That way, I’ll be extra ready to settle into my new home! And, because I’ve been here a little bit longer than my friends, staff have had the opportunity to get to know me really well, and they will gladly answer any questions you may have about me.

As an extra "thank you" for considering taking me home, my adoption fee has been waived*!
