Jerralyn has the happiest tail! It wags and wags when she's being petted, eating dinner - or just saying Hi to people she meets. She loves to be petted and hopes to snuggle with everyone.

Now in foster care, this affectionate girl is something of a mama dog. She snuggles on the couch with the fosters' three boy dogs and their 5-year-old daughter. She's very watchful when playing with the daughter and the puppy dog, wanting to protect both of them and telling the puppy to not get too close to the little girl. She's super chill with her soulful eyes, then she's off to snooze.

She's also great on her leash walks, calm and a little slow, but very curious about what she sees. She came from a hoarding situation, so house-training is new to her. She's making progress, learning to come get her fosters when she needs to go outside, playfully jumping. She eats and sleeps in her crate and stays there nicely when her fosters are away.

This sweet, easygoing lady will be a low-maintenance companion for anyone who wants a snuggle bug. She's just looking for a chill home where she can go outdoors and snooze in the sun. She is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet her and see her tail wag wag wag!
