If you'd like a companion who's always ready to give you snuggles, come meet Grey Tips. This lovable girl will always drop whatever she's doing to snuggle with you. And if you want to repay her with affection, just call her. Right away, she'll roll over for your belly rubs.

This active lady loves to go on car rides, sticking her nose out the window. She also likes to run around in open areas, sniffing everything she sees. Then at home, she'll chew on bones and happily snooze on the couch with her people. She has some anxiety, but once she's comfortable with new people she meets, she's very sweet with them. She loves to snuggle on laps she lives with and share their pillows.

She has lived well with big and small dogs, tending to keep to herself and not bother them. She also has lived with children under age 5, getting along well with them. She has been trained and understands "sit," "down" and "stay." Some additional leash training could be useful; she gets very excited on walks and pulls hard on her leash. At home, she is house-trained, standing at the back door to ask to go outside. And she considers her crate her safe space, going there for her meals and to sleep. When her people are gone, she does well either freely roaming the house or snoozing in her crate.

Grey Tips' ideal home will be with adults or older kids who can handle this strong girl when she plays with toys or games like tug-o-war. She will love patient parents who can continue her training, and she will be happy as the only pet or with a doggie companion. And with her anxiety, she hopes for a quiet home with a yard to explore. Come meet this very sweet girl!
