My former person and I had a sweet life together. She loved me for being “affectionate, loyal, a great lap dog,” and I loved how she brushed me and rubbed my belly. But she’s moved many states away to a home with very young children and another dog, and since I wasn’t good with the toddlers and prefer to be the only canine, she left me here. That was tough; I’m shy and didn’t know what to expect. But I’m also active, smart, and love going for walks, so things are better now. Plus, you might like to know I have good indoor manners, “ask” to go outside, and give kisses if you like. I’m a 3-1/2-year-old female, 48 pounds, and I could be great company at home if you’ll give me the chance.
