A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I had the pleasure of meeting Stoli and spending some quality time with her in the play yard. She LOVES the hose and pool!!!! She transforms into a puppy as soon as you turn it on. Stoli seems to know basic obedience sit, giving paw, etc., and walks really well on leash. She is a total love bug that needs a loving place to live out her golden years. Do you have the room in your home and heart for Stoli? Come to the shelter to meet her…you won’t be disappointed.
A staff member writes: Stoli was brought to us because her owner died. A family member took her temporarily but since they have a baby, they decided they could not keep her. She is a super sweet senior that is calm and laid back! Please consider Stoli!!

Stoli softly barked in her kennel when handler approached. She allowed leashing and walked out of the kennel on her own. She did not react to the barking dogs around her and walked calmly on the leash. When outside, her tail was wagging when she was spoken to and she had a loose body. She came over and placed her head in her handler’s hands and licked them.Stoli was not interested in any toys, her attention was focused on her handler. Stoli dd not pull on the leash during her walk but maintained a slow and steady pace. Stoli easily returned to the shelter and went into the kennel without issue. She allowed her head to be touched and pet when unleashing.
