Completely trained, potty and leash-wise, she just needs a forever home. A little shy at first, but now she plays and cuddles like a puppy. And then sleeps it off. She even loves baths. She has hearing and sight issues, but we’re finding she can see better than we thought. Very loving girl and would be perfect for someone who is home a lot with time to spoil this angel.
