Meet Loretta

Meet Loretta. She’s the type of well-balanced dog that spoils pet owners. Loretta is energetic without being rambunctious, an extrovert who also loves her “me time,” and is food motivated in a way that doesn’t lead to her hunting around for other treats.

When this two-year-old lays down her head at night, visions of rope toys dance in her head. It would explain why she wakes up every morning and the first thing she grabs is her favorite toy. She’ll “double dog dare you” to try to get it from her; with a low grumble, she says, “It’s on.” Don’t let this morning spurt of energy fool you though: She’s only a morning gal for about ten to fifteen minutes, and then it’s back to the Land O’Slumber.

Loretta’s perfect day involves going for a 30 to 45-minute exploratory walk where she can catch all the sights and smells. She likes to lead the way but listens well when instructed to “leave it” and “sit.” Loretta’s comfortable around new people and dogs she sees out and about without being overly interested. When she gets home, it’s off to a well-deserved power nap for her—one of the recurring themes of her day.

Reserved but not shy, a job Loretta takes very seriously is being the Hostess-with-the-Mostess. She loves to be part of the conversation and is quick to mingle with each person: “Hello, how are you? … Thank you for coming. … Have you tried the rope toy? It’s delightful.” When you approach her, expect to be greeted by her belly and a big, sweet grin. If you really want to see her excited, run some errands and return home to a helicopter tail that looks like it might lift her off the ground. Throwing a welcome home party is one of her hostess specialties.

Ultimately, Loretta is a sweetheart who is happiest with her person/people. She's ready for a place to call her own. If Loretta speaks to you and you think she’d fit nicely into your routine, apply today:
