My story

Do you like snuggles in the morning? Do you like napping with a cuddle bud? Then, I'm the girl for you! Hi, I'm Tessy. I'm 2 years old, 44 pounds and ready to spend the rest of my days with you. Like Beyonce, I'm from Houston, Texas and now in New Jersey with my foster mom, working on my confidence and zoomie game. I specialize in long naps, being the little spoon and oinking like a pig when I get good belly rubs. I love to play hide and seek with my toys -- meaning, I like to hide my own toys and surprise myself seeking them! I'm very gentle when it's time to clean up or take treats (I just might need to stop you with some kisses first!). I'm very low maintenance and chill - I am going through the moxy/doxy Heartworm treatment and need a big spoon to nap with! If there’s anything else you’d like to know about me, email! Oink, oink, hope to meet you soon!

Age : 2 years

Weight: 44 lbs

Needs fenced in yard? Ideally

Dogs: Best with calmer dogs

Cats: Unknown

Kids: In foster with 3 teenagers. I would do best with older kids because I can get scared at times.

Energy level (scale of 1-10): 4-5

Vaccinated: yes

Spayed/Neutered: yes

Microchipped: yes

Other considerations: I need a patient owner who understands I'm still learning how great a home is...but I've made so much progress already in my foster home!

Tessy is currently in Hoboken, NJ and is available for adoption throughout the Northeast.
