Chrissy is a calm and loving pup who has the sweetest eyes, a very gentle spirit and is pretty much impossible not to fall in love with. She can be shy with new people at first, but she adores attention and warms up quickly, so it's not long before she's decided you're her new best friend.

Chrissy has a low to medium energy level, enjoys taking leisurely walks and likes to sniff all the things along the way. She's fully house-trained, easy on leash and about as well-behaved a dog as you could hope for. Chrissy is very eager to please her people and doesn't ask for much in return - some nice walks, a little cuddle time and a place to make her nest will make her the happiest dog in the world. She also gets along well with her canine friends and has lived with Luna, a pointer mix, in her previous home.

Any family would be lucky to add such a kind and mellow companion to their household. Come meet her!
