My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:



Single white female looking to spend the rest of her life with a forever true love. Might that be you?

This four-year-old beauty is Gentle Spirit, and her name truly befits this sweet, gentle soul.  She came into foster care the day before she was to be euthanized, a shy, timid girl who was also heartworm positive. With heartworm treatment now a memory and declared heartworm-free, she is ready to go to her forever home to be a beloved companion. She is now a healthy 75 pounds.

Spirit is a docile, quiet girl with a goofy, playful side. She has learned how to be a "dog" and has learned how to play with smaller dogs in her foster home. It does take her a while to warm up to strange dogs, so she would need long and slow introductions if there is another dog in the home, but another friendly dog, more on the calm, stable side yet still likes to play a little bit might help her continue in her development. Spirit walks pretty well on leash, and she does ok on car rides, particularly the outings to Starbucks or Bruster's where she gets yummy treats.

She is not fond of a crate after spending so much time confined to one during her HW treatment, but she has started to take refuge in one when the big thunderstorms come around. She is house-trained and sleeps loose in the bedroom with her foster family. Being the velcro girl she is, she would probably like a home where she is not left alone for long periods; she makes a great home officemate and is excellent on those virtual meetings as she never makes a peep.  She loves quietly being in the middle of things with her people. 

She has learned to respect the cat in her foster home, who is very calm around dogs; if the cat does run, she will chase but not harm. She also likes to chase birds and squirrels in the backyard, so a fenced yard would be best. She is initially cautious of strangers but does warm up quickly; treats always help speed that process. She has not been exposed to children in her foster home, but she would probably be fine with older children (10+ years old). She is now a healthy 75 pounds.

Her foster grandpa says she will make a wonderful family member for someone.
