Meet Valerie

Meet Valerie, the ultimate snuggle bug and lap warmer! This information comes from her Fourth of July foster, who had the pleasure of spending five days with her. Valerie is all about love and affection. Whether it's cuddling, getting petted, or giving the sweetest hugs, she thrives on human connection. She's a crate enthusiast, happily trotting in to enjoy her treats and making it her cozy retreat.

Valerie has impeccable table manners, choosing to relax in the living room while her foster family ate. She has no issues with resource guarding and eats her meals with gusto. When it comes to walks, she's a pro on the leash, although she has a natural curiosity for squirrels (who can blame her?) and prefers to be the only dog around. Her response to verbal redirection like "leave it" is impressive.

Car rides are a breeze with Valerie, making her the perfect travel buddy. Initially a bit shy about bathroom breaks during walks, she quickly adapted and started signaling when she needed to go out after a few days. While she had a few accidents indoors, this was likely due to adjusting to a new environment and routines, so a bit of patience and continued training will help her thrive.

Valerie is looking for a forever home where she can continue to share her cuddles, enjoy her crate time, and go on walks. Could that be with you?
