Tanya is a funny, playful girl who's beginning to learn that humans can be trustworthy - and fun to play with. This little lady was found as a stray recently, and her previous experience with people appears to have caused her to be wary of them. Now in foster care, she's beginning to learn that they're fun to play with. And she'll hang out next to them and is starting to accept more of their petting. Such progress on gaining her loyalty and confidence in them!

She's sharing her new home with her fosters' dogs and wants their attention - and playtime. Her dog buddies are helping her decide that people are helpful, and she will do a funny dance when her fosters offer her chew treats. She comes when called and understands "sit, and she's becoming more confident in lounging next to her people. She can still feel uncertain, so she likes going to her crate and prefers it for bedtime.

Tanya will enjoy a home with parents who can continue helping her feel safe and comfortable. And dog buddies can help build her trust. She'll also love a yard to roam. Come meet her. Give her some time to get acquainted and she'll decide you're her new buddy!
Come meet your new best friend

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
