Permanent Grownup Needed. Apply via APA!. Please note: Treats preferred over resumes.

This is Dumbo, and here are some things you should know about her: She has the most stunning set of ears you have ever seen in your life. Seriously, whisper how much you love her, and she'll hear it. She's fairly low key and thoroughly enjoys lounging around all day watching people walk by as her person watches Netflix. (Hey, if you're cool with three hours of cuddling, she is too.) She love love loves treats. If you bring out a treat, she can jump up, spin, lay down, and sit. If she gets really excited, she might do them all at once without prompting. She keeps a clean home, so you best believe she never goes to the bathroom indoors. She'll let you know when it's time to go out. If it squeaks, it's hers. Her job in life is to find and (happily) destroy any squeaky toys. They say you should choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Trust us, she has never worked a day in her life.

Things she's looking for in her permanent grownup: Someone with an abundance of treats on hand. Someone who will appreciate her for her personality and not just her ears and gorgeous black fur. Someone who's willing to make her the number one dog in their life. If she's gotta have siblings, it can be a discussion. Someone ready to say, "Let's go home, Dumbo."

Alright, that's Dumbo in a nutshell! If you feel like responding to her classified, click "Adopt Me" and let's see if this journey brings you together.
