A volunteer writes: What a wiggle butt! So happy to see me stop in front of her kennel leash in hand, Skye wiggle waggles with the excitement of it all and out we go. Going potty immediately confirms she’s housetrained as her previous owners advised. Skye lived with young kids and a cat and with both she was relaxed and playful. We’re told she’s high energy, loves to play with toys and balls, doesn’t mind a bath and knows ‘sit’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’ and ‘give paw’. What a smart girl! She ‘shook paw’ with me and is so cute, giving my hand a little kiss when we “shook”. Skye pulls slightly on the leash, was a rockstar being tethered for photos, and amused herself for quite some time playing with a toy in the backyard. We’re also told that she’s playful with other dogs, and her wiggle butt and excited tail wag as other dogs approached our pen confirms that. In her first group she greeted another female politely. What nice manners she has! Skye is fun, smart, engaging, and active, looking for a new home in which she’ll get lots of exercise, lots of play time and lots of mental stimulation. This is a little girl, beautifully cared for, who needs to exercise her brain as well as her body. Come meet Miss Skye today.
