For a New Family to Know:
Hope is described as friendly, playful, affectionate & loving with a medium-high activity level. She’s an indoor mostly dog that is housebroken (wee wee pads), is well behaved when left home alone & eats dry Pedigree dog chow food 2x a day. Hope sleeps on a dog bed or with the owner (most of the times) & enjoys stuffed, squeaky & ball toys. Hope is walked 2x a day where she pulls on her leash at times.
During intake Hope had a loose, wiggly body & allowed all handling. She is the sweetest little girl that loves to be held & give kisses. Hope allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. She didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held at all and was placed into a kennel with ease which was hard for me as I wanted to keep her in my arms.
