A volunteer writes: The best part about baking a cake is making the fudge icing and then licking the bowl – so the name Fudge brings back sweet memories and I couldn’t wait to meet our Fudge. She’s all marble cake in a beautiful brindle coat, soliciting attention from her kennel when she sees a person with a leash. ‘Hey you out there, it’s me in here, wiggle, wiggle, let’s go out!!!’ With a lively energy of a pup half her age, Miss Fudge is a delight on leash, goes potty the moment we’re outside and enjoys exploring the sidewalk as we go. She’s a people dog…there isn’t a person we pass whom she doesn’t want to meet looking up hopefully with a wave of her tail. Surrendered to our care due to personal problems, we’re told she’s friendly to all, energetic, good with kids and knows not to play rough with them, is housetrained when walked regularly, doesn’t guard her things, is affectionate and playful, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘down’. Fudge showed me her sit and then gives a quick jump up for the treat in my hand which she takes gently. In group play she politely greets other dogs and offers appropriate correction for mounting. Lively, fun, and friendly, Fudge would love a new family with whom to play and love. She loves loves loves being with people, so I see her in setting where she can keep you company a good part of the day. Come meet our sweet Fudge today.
Another volunteer writes: Who doesn’t love some fudge, right? Well, the same could be said for Fudge the dog! Fudge is a 6 year old girl with a whole lot of enthusiasm for life. I swung by her cage, and she immediately came to the front to greet me. I asked if she wanted to take a walk, and she responded with a happy bark. I like to think I can translate “dog,” so I’m pretty sure she said “Let’s do this!” And off we went! Fudge loves taking walks–she loves exploring the world and meeting new people and getting treats. She’s a beautiful brindle girl with soft, sweet eyes and a sweet heart. Come on down and check out this great girl for yourself!
