A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: “Beware of the cuteness” staff told us, and boy were they right. The tail and butt wiggles the dog, she LOVES to be with people, she LOVES to play with toys, and when she figures out she can cuddle and have a toy in her mouth at the same time……it’s bliss! Surrendered by her person, we’re told she’s outgoing with everyone, is “very housetrained”, is playful with kids, is great with other dogs (and romped with abandon in her first playgroup with boys and girls), doesn’t guard her things, is crate trained (loves a soft blanket in her crate) and is energetic and fun (check!). Hugs, kisses, fun and playtime are in store for the lucky person who adopts Miss Hennessy. And of course, we were serenading her with the song from Sesame Street as she played with the yellow duck: “Rubber Duckie you’re the one, you make bath time so much fun, Rubber Duckie I’m awfully fond of you….” Hennessy looked at us as if we were crazy, and we are…crazy about her! Come meet her and see for yourself!
