My story

Strap on your sneakers, I have a lot of energy and need an active adopter. Let’s run, run, run! I think I would like to try agility. Give me something to challenge my mind and channel my energy.

An adopter with hound experience would help me thrive.

People say that teenagers are hard to live with, but not for me. Bring’em on!

I need a home without other dogs or cats, I prefer all the attention myself.

It may take me some time to settle into a new home. I have been at Gracious Friends for over a year now, but just wait until I open up and you see my true colors.

I can be a little sensitive. Ask our staff for more info.
