Introducing Florence! She is a resilient pup focused on living with joy! Florence can be a little shy when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly. It took only a couple of hours for her to request pets, belly rubs and love from her foster mom and she warmed to her foster dad after a few days -- and some good treats.

Now she is their shadow, following them around the house all day! She's also dog-friendly and immediately took to her foster pup siblings. She loves running, playing and wrestling with them. Florence should do well as the only pup in a home as she would with a pup playmate or two. She is also friendly and playful with her foster's cat but easily redirected when the grumpy cat has had enough playtime!

This well-behaved girl responds to simple verbal commands and is completely house-trained. She loves to explore the house and follow her fosters around to keep them company. She hangs out in her crate when they are away and sleeps overnight without a peep! She enjoys car rides, gazing out the window or taking a snooze. She loves going for short leash walks to explore the neighborhood then running and playing in the backyard with her fosters and their pups. She walks with a slight wiggle. A vet believes her gait may have been caused by a past spinal trauma and will likely continue to improve over time. She does fine going up and down short flights of stairs and will do best in a home with no stairs or short flights.

If you are looking for a well-behaved, happy-go-lucky, silly pup to make you smile, laugh and shower you with love, come meet Florence. This awesome girl has so much to offer and deserves a family to call her own! Come meet Florence today!
