Meet Gretchen

Hi, my name is Gretchen! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Energetic, playful, silly, still working on my manners
-Can Live with Kids: Yes, sturdy dog-savvy kids ages 6+ (up to counselor's discretion)
-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history - would need a proper introduction to ensure everyone gets along. I would likely be overwhelming for any shy or senior cats who prefer being left alone.
-Can Live with Dogs: Yes, I could potentially live with a PUPPY-TOLERANT dog after an initial introduction here at the shelter and a prolonged introduction process in the home.
-Can do Apartment Living: Yes, with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. BUT keep in mind that I'm going to get much bigger and am a high energy breed.
-Potty Trained: Working on it!
-Bite History: Yes, ask staff for more details
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, a 6-week puppy course
-Energy Level: HIGH!
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a spay/MC

Additional Information: Gretchen is an energetic puppy looking for a dedicated person/family willing to work on her training to ensure she becomes a well-rounded adult. Puppies require a lot more attention and dedication than most adult dogs - Gretchen's future adopters must be ready and able to give her everything she needs to be successful. She will need a home where someone is present most of the time as puppies do not do well being left alone long hours. Gretchen is going to be an active adult and will need an owner who is just as active as she is! If you'd like to meet Gretchen, the first step is submitting an adoption application. Our staff will then review your application to ensure it's a good match.
