My story

To some, a dandelion is a weed
But this flower has many seeds.

The dandelion is the first to appear
Sending the signal summer is near.

When everything is dark and dreary
The yellow flower seems so cheery.

What does a shelter dog have in common with a dandelion? Well, people don’t always see the beauty of a dandelion just as they don’t always see the beauty of the many, many shelter dogs who are ready to give their everything to a family. It’s a case of mistaken identity! A dandelion is much more than just a weed, and a shelter dog is much more than just a dog in need of a home. A shelter dog like our lovely Dandelion is a best friend, a loyal companion, a support system and a comfort to her family- we just need to find her that family! This beautiful, gentle girl has overcome her initial fears in the shelter environment and has come to love her volunteer friends and her time with them. She is timid but affectionate, shy but sweet, and ready to share her heart with you! Dandelion has shared her kennel with another pup while in the shelter and was tolerant and independent when meeting other dogs in playgroup. Ask to meet this perfect little flower today!
