Parsley's Story

Parsley is a people person! She absolutely LOVES to be near her humans and will follow you from room to room. She recently spent some time in foster and was described as "such a lover". Her fosters reported that she enjoys belly rubs, lounging near you, and cuddles of any kind. She is also a very playful dog and likes trips to the lakefront, rolling in the grass, showing off her amazing obedience skills, and chasing tennis balls.

Parsley was in an adoptive home for five years since puppy hood and was brought back because she was not getting along with the other resident dog. She is understandably scared and stressed since being back, so she can't wait to get into an adoptive home soon! Her ideal setting would be a quiet, adults only home with no other animals. We know that once she settles into a home and gets the TLC and training she craves, she will make a fantastic companion!
