Why Choose me?
Tessa is a darling girl. When I first met her, she was hiding in the back of her kennel and wasn’t sure about all the noises of Animal Control. I had help getting her out, but once she was with me, I had a new friend. Tessa wanted to stay right beside me. She is a beauty with a gorgeous brindle coat and lovely amber colored eyes. Her ears are so cute. Tessa is sweet and liked being held. When Hobson, a friendly Pomeranian, passed the interaction pen, it was obvious that she wanted to play with him. She’d meet him at the fence but then quickly run back to me. She did that a few more times happily wagging her tail. Come play with Tessa today. As I passed her kennel later in the day, she was spending more time at her gate and seemed a little less frightened of her surroundings. If you don’t see her, however, ask for help getting her out. She’s a sweet girl and would love to be with you.
