Meet Sweetie!!
8 months old
Shepherd mix
30 lbs

Sweetie has absolutely earned her name! She really is the sweetest doggo around. She does have a tendency to be shy and timid, but once shes given an opportunity to warm up, she’ll be your best friend forever.

This girl is perfectly crate trained! She has never had an accident in her crate and she sleeps through the night, no problem. My husband and I leave her in her crate with some toys while we’re at work and she does great! The potty training is a work in progress, but she’s improved so much.

Sweetie (aka smarty pants) learned ‘sit’ and ‘down’ within a matter of minutes! She will play fetch endlessly, run around and play with her foster siblings, play tug, and CUDDLE. I’ve never met a dog who loves to cuddle as much a Sweetie does. She’s amazing with children and other dogs of all ages and sizes. She’s the ideal family dog!

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes – pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.
