Say hello to Birdie! After being found wandering as a stray in the cold, this sweet girl is looking for a new forever!

Birdie is a 38 lb flat coated retriever mix. Her gorgeous brindle coloring makes us think she may be mixed with plott hound, but we’re not sure since she isn’t telling us. At 1 year old, she is just about done growing and is going to be the perfect fun-sized dog!

It has been fun to watch her transform from a shy and scared pup to an affectionate and silly girl! We have learned that she likes to snuggle and will curl up next to you or in your lap for all the love she can get. She has also discovered that she loves toys and Nyla bones. Birdie will keep you laughing as she flings her stuffies into the air to entertain herself! She is completely housebroken and will go to the door when she needs to go out. She knows hit to sit and comes when you call her. She is also crate trained and is content hanging out in her crate while you are at work. She will be very wiggly and excited to see you when you get home! At night, Birdie sleeps quietly and soundly in a dog bed on the floor next to your bed…though she prefers to snuggle with her people on the bed. Sometimes she lightly snores - but we love that.

Birdie is as sweet as can be and loves people. She will follow you around (weaving between your legs) and loves having her ears scratched and her belly rubbed. She also likes to sit next to you on the couch and watch tv. She lives with three other dogs at her foster's house and gets along great with all of them. She especially likes the other foster, Millie (also available - see her bio), and will play and snuggle with her. She loves to play, and is great at taking cues from other dogs. When another dog is done playing, she entertains herself with toys and Nyla bones. We think she would benefit from having another dog as a friend. We haven't seen her around cats, so if you have a cat we would want to set up a meeting to make sure she wouldn't try to play too much. We think she would probably be ok.

Birdie does great on car rides and will curl up quietly in the passenger seat and snooze. She likes to run around in the fenced yard, explore around the house, play with toys, and take naps.
