A volunteer writes: Could this girl be any sweeter if she tried?! If you didn’t immediately answer “no” then it’s only because you haven’t met her yet! Mia is beautiful, mushy, gentle, playful, AND classy! She walks so nicely and instantly in sync with her walker that I envision her gliding down cosmopolitan streets and stopping everyone in their tracks. She has previously lived harmoniously with a child, has been crowned a “playgroup rockstar” due to the social skills she’s displayed with other dogs in our care, and seems to know no stranger. She is always super cuddly and playful with me in the most engaging, bouncy way — going from my lap to a play bow shuffle and landing back again in no time. Her rapid little tail wags are outdone only by her lovey-dovey eye contact and sweet kisses. She is a GEM and would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC!
