Meet Parsley

Hi, I'm Parsley. I am a funny, entertaining little girl. And I am a poodle/terrier mix and hypoallergenic.

One of my pictures shows how I looked when I came to Homeward Trails. I looked like I had never had a haircut. This is NOT a recommended look for any dog, let me tell you. It is uncomfortable and makes it difficult to walk. I now go to the groomer and have a new hairdo. My hair does not grow very fast, so you don't have to worry about frequent groomings - two or three times a year is adequate.

I have a bubbly personality! I am smart and know commands for sit and lie down. I can even turn around on my hind legs and dance for you. I play with toys and enjoy sitting next to you on the couch. I am housetrained.

I love to follow my foster around the house and would make a great companion for someone who is retired or works from home. I am easy to walk and enjoy my time outside. I would be happiest in a quiet adult only home with people who have some dog experience. That said, my foster entertains and I behave very well when she has maybe 20 people (I can't count) over for dinner.

I once met a crazy creature they called a cat. I wasn't impressed and wanted to chase the cat, so I probably would not want to live with one. Big dogs scare me, but once I get to know little dogs, I do fine with them.

My life has been a bit rough - I was seized in a police raid in Baltimore - but I still love life and people, and definitely have a positive attitude. I would love to be your companion and playmate. Please ask to meet me!

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting
