Do you believe that dreams come true? I've been dreaming of a family with love, activities, playtime & adventures. Every night I dream that I will be the one you are searching for; that special dog you want to include in the memories you make with your family!

My name is Darby and I'm cute, bouncy, smart, energetic and always ready for some fun. I am the perfect companion for an active family or someone who enjoys a daily run followed by a lot of cuddling. If you would like an energetic young dog, we will definitely hit it off! I'm super wiggly and find it hard to sit still when I'm spending time with my friends.

I don't have too many dog friends yet but that's only because I haven't had an opportunity to spend much time with dogs for longer than a quick sniff to say hello and a few minutes of exchanging pleasantries. With a slow introduction, I'd love to have some canine siblings or playmates.

Human siblings would be pretty great too; I love children! So far I have only met school aged children though, so I'm not sure about toddlers yet but I bet I’ll hit it off with them too.

I like to think of myself as fun-sized since I'm vertically challenged compared to most of the other Mayday dogs. I'm also naturally lean; although a lot of people think it's really because I have enough energy to last for days. I can't help it, I'm just a really happy dog and always excited to see and do everything I can.

Establishing the house rules, giving me lots of exercise and spending time with me will all be important if I am to thrive in my new home. I'm really intelligent and a fast learner so I know that with you helping to teach me all the important stuff, we will be great together. I’ve already got some obedience training under my collar and have even done some agility.

If you want a friendly, outgoing dog to share your life with, contact Mayday and ask to meet me. Maybe you can even adopt me; that would make my dreams come true!
