  • Animal ID#: A303953
  • Dog Name: Bookie
  • Dog Sex: Spayed Female
  • Approximate Age: 1 year
  • This girl is absolutely fabulous and is thriving in her foster home! She starts off very shy, but once she warms, she is all about the hops, the wiggles, affection and the zoomies! She’s a total silly, playful gal! In foster, she’s a total love bug. She just wants to be by her people. She loves to snuggle. She’s happy to go into her crate to eat and even will sleep in there, but her foster mom lets her sleep on the couch or her bed as well. She’s been using a doggie door at the house. Bookie gets along great with her foster-dog brother Bear. They play often and even like to snuggle up to each other. She shares the toys. Check them out in this video! She’s easy to walk and maintains a loose leash. She’s a sweet girl who just wants to love and be loved. She’s eager to please and is treat motivated. She’s a wonderful girl who will thrive in a home with another dog to boost her confidence!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
