About Me: I came to the SPCA of Texas through a cruelty case along with my 10 babies. They're all grown up now so it's my turn to be the baby. I'm a timid girl who can be quite shy around new people, but I warm up quickly and then love to have all their attention! Once you're my person I will be by your side forever.

Personality: My fosters say that I am a gentle and well-behaved dog. Once comfortable, I love to run and play in a backyard and catch a ball. I'm mostly an indoor girl though and enjoy spending most of my day relaxing on a big comfy armchair. I also like tossing my stuffed toys in the air to play with them. I love getting pets and snuggling with my humans. I need them to reassure me when I get scared. My foster mom says I particularly love to jump in water when I see it.

My Dream Home: I'll need a house with a securely fenced in yard. I'm not big on meeting strangers, so I'd like my family to have a low-traffic household with adults only. I'm particularly wary of men so my home should have at least 1 female to help me build more confidence.

My Ideal Humans: They'll be a patient family who understands that I'm nervous in new situations and may take some time to adjust to a new environment and routine. They will also take me on leash walks daily in low stress areas.

Dogs/Cats: Yes please! Having another calm, friendly, confident dog in the home will help me be more confident as well! I lived with a cat in a previous foster home and we lived peacefully together.
