Are you looking for your new best friend and loyal companion? Sicily is the girl for you!

She enjoys cuddling with her foster mom and getting all the head pets and belly rubs. She will even remind her to continue petting her with a gentle head nudge if he foster mom forgets her duties and gets distracted with something else.

This smart cookie is already picking up house training and hasn't had an accident in the home! She goes quietly into her kennel when her foster mom leaves and doesn't make a peep while she is gone. She also walks well on the leash and listens well!

She doesn't seem to mind the 20 lb, older dog in the home and just seems to be excited to want to play with him, although he is not too thrilled to return the favor. Sicily would probably get along best with a younger dog, but one that is more submissive as she does seem to be an alpha female!

If you are interested in hearing more about her, or meeting her, please reach out!
