PET PROFILE MEMO

07/11/2016 A volunteer writes: “Foxy Lady” is all I kept thinking during my time with Miss Tizzy. She’s a stunning girl, sleek in her slate gray coat, well groomed and gorgeous. After taking care of her business the moment we were outside we’re off to the park, Tizzy pulling a bit on the leash but totally manageable. She’s calm and gentle, posed for some photos like a super model, and we then sat together to watch some kids playing ball. She was smiling and I couldn’t tell if it was the ball or the kids, or maybe both that had her so gently relaxed. Tizzy and I went off leash in a small area of the building and when Tizzy found my plush toy she carried it around in her mouth, her prize, squeaking it endlessly. So cute! Coming into my lap, toy in mouth, she was happy being pet, and her tail wagged in rhythm to the squeak! I let her take the toy back into her kennel and she lay down with it in her mouth, and when I passed her shortly thereafter she was sitting up, toy still in her mouth, just watching everyone pass by. She’s an
absolute delight, a sophisticated puppy, ready to begin her happily ever after with you.
