A volunteer writes: Mandie! I call her my little jumping bean because when you approach her kennel she gives a few hops in excitement! And the feeling is mutual-I like seeing her just as much as she likes recognizing a familiar face. Found as a stray, I wasn’t surprised in the least to read that she jumped up on her finder’s legs begging for head rubs! Mandie seems very housetrained and is enthusiastic about relieving herself. She loves to play with toys, squeakies in particular, and is always ready to have you join in on the fun. In playgroup, Mandie is extremely social and even checks in on the other dogs when they seem uncomfortable! Mandie is high energy and could probably benefit from a little more training and polishing, but she’s already got the foundations for being an awesome family pet. Ask to meet her today!
Unaltered female, Stray
