Sweetheart is a wonderful, loving, snuggle bug! She really lives up to her name. 5 years old and 45 lbs, Sweetheart can't wait to show you how perfect she is. She is fine with other dogs, but may try and chase active cats. She loves treats, doesn't bark and is always ready to give you a hug!
From her foster mom: "She is always besides herself with happiness when she knows she is going out on a walk. She's wagged so hard with excitement that she has fallen over! She easily lets you put on her leash and harness to get ready. On her walks, she loves to smell everything she can, and perks up (and will try to chase) squirrels. On longer walks (ones that span 45+ minutes) she may sit on the sidewalk for a bit to enjoy the scenery and catch her breath.
Inside, she loves napping and being around people. While watching TV she'll curl up on the couch or floor next to me. She loves to snuggle.

We are a unique rescue, aiming to appeal to people who typically buy from pet stores and breeders. We want to promote adoption in a positive and fun way. We have the same goal as other shelters- to find homeless dogs and cats their forever homes, but we want to change the stigma some people have towards shelters and its animals by creating a chic place that people will want to go to.
We are always on the lookout for animal lovers who are interested in fostering our pets. Please contact us if you would like to assist us with this or other volunteer opportunities.
