Suzy's Story

Say hello to Suzy!  This sweetheart is absolutely gorgeous and would love to find a forever home where she can strut her stuff and show off to the world just how beautiful she truly is both inside and out.  Suzy loves everyone she meets and has a personality that makes her an absolute star!  She enjoys playtime and is always eager to go on a nice, long walk.  Suzy is also well on her way to being a star in obedience training.  She has already mastered a few basic commands and even knows how to “watch” her handler when another dog is passing on a walk!  Since Suzy can get excited when she sees another dog on her daily stroll, watching her walking partner helps to curb this behavior and will be an extremely helpful tool to use in her forever home.  She would love the opportunity to learn even more in training class in the future with her forever family by her side.  To top it all off, Suzy is an expert when it comes to cuddling!  She loves to curl up right by your side and settle in for a nice, relaxing night on the couch.  This girl is truly a jack of all trades. 

Suzy is searching for a quiet and calm home without young children as she does not like to share her food or toys.  She is currently spending some time in a foster home where her foster family has fallen in love with everything about her.  She does well in a crate and is fine when left alone for periods of time.  She also is completely housebroken and hasn’t had any accidents since her arrival in their home!  From her time there, we’ve learned that Suzy enjoys romping around their fenced in backyard and has so much fun fetching tennis balls whenever she feels the urge to play!  She also enjoys chewing on squeaky toys and has a blast doing anything she can to get to the squeaker inside.  Suzy is also a huge fan Kong toys, especially when they’re filled with peanut butter!  She can spend hours and hours trying her best to lap up all the deliciousness!  Suzy is sure to brighten up her forever family’s lives as she is such a happy-go-lucky and vibrant girl.  If you’re looking for one amazing companion who will have you smiling every single day, then consider meeting Suzy!  You’ll surely fall in love with her with just one look into her sweet brown eyes.
