Sweetie's Story

Say hello to your new best friend, Sweetie! Full of life and energy, this gorgeous girl is looking for an active family to take her on multiple walks or short runs during the day. Sweetie is a bit timid in new environments and needs an adopter who will be patient and give her the time she needs to really come out of her shell in her future home. While she may be reserved in the beginning, once she warms up her true personality comes alive! Sweetie greatly enjoys playing fetch with any squeaky toy she can find and is a total sweetheart after she’s tuckered out and ready for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Due to her nervous nature, Sweetie will do best in a home without young children or other dogs and preferably with someone who has experience with her breed. Her forever family will also need to be on board with continuing her training and socialization. Sweetie might be shy but give her a little time and the right home and she’s sure to live up to her name!

  • Squeak! Squeak! I love Squeaky chew toys!
  • I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • I’d love to be your running buddy
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all


  • I prefer to be the only pet in the home
  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
