My story

While you might think a soggy Wheat Thin isn't appealing at all, our girl loves water and will not pass up a puddle. She's also an athletic girl who loves going on runs, and though she was once inclined to pull, her lovely leash walking manners are now getting top marks.

Although she's initially cautious when meeting new people, she'll warm up quickly so that you can see what a ham she really is. Our adoption counselors will have much more to share with potential adopters from Wheat Thin's recent outings. She has been enjoying a lot of activities, field trips and sleepovers with our volunteers. She's loving every chance she gets to sample home life and all the more ready to find her full-time home.

Wheat Thin especially loves training time with us because we use positive reinforcement. That means learning comes with food, and she's a big fan. Come get to know her and see all that she knows!
