I am already spayed.
Hey there! Are you looking at me? I HOPE you are seeing a beautiful, voluptuous female and not judging me by my waistline. Sure, I know I could stand to lose a couple of pounds, but I am confident in my inner and outer beauty. Remember, Marilyn Monroe, who was one of the most beautiful movie stars in the world, was a size 14!
But enough about body shaming. I am a lovely blue and white 3-year-old girl dog who was rescued from a high kill shelter. I am grateful to be at the HSHC where I was treated for an upper respiratory infection. I am now out of sick bay and in the kennel where people can see me. I sure hope someone falls in love with me pretty soon. I find the atmosphere in the dog kennel to be a little noisy for my taste. I prefer a more peaceful environment.
I'm not a stuffed shirt though. My personality is naturally friendly, playful, loyal and loving. I get attached to a person, and they become very important to me. I will do anything to make them happy. Being only 3-years-old, I enjoy romping in the yard, playing with toys with my person, and giving sloppy wet kisses and major butt wiggles. I especially love being talked to in a baby voice! OOOOOH, it makes my heart sing. I might get so excited that I jump up, but it is only because I am so happy. I admit that I weigh 72.2 pounds and I need more exercise to help me lose the extra love handles. I am already spayed, housebroken, and know how to walk on a leash. Although I have been around lots of dogs and I don't have any problems with them, I just cannot abide a cat. Sorry. I know there are probably 100's of perfectly nice cats in the world. But when I see one I just find myself thinking "Snack food." Just keeping it real, folks.
If you see my pictures and think, Now there's a beautiful dog! Then don't you think you better come and meet me? 8/2/17
