Petra is in a safe, loving home for maybe the first time in her life - and she's loving this new experience!

This beautiful girl arrived at the shelter thin and very timid. Now in foster care, she's learning how wonderful it is to be beloved, playful and secure. She follows her foster mom, hoping for snuggles on the couch and even aspiring to be a lap dog, giving kisses.

Since so much in a home is new to her, she's busy investigating and exploring her surroundings. And she's learning how to play with her chew toys, bully sticks, kongs and squeaky toys.

She loves going for walks with her mom, and does well on her leash. And it's even more fun when mom chases her around the yard! Plus, she's a smart girl who answers to the No, Outside and Let's Go commands, and she's house trained.

Petra gets along very well with other dogs, soliciting wrestling with them by giving play bows.

This sweet girl is looking for a home where she can play with older kids and a dog buddy, and one with a family who can help her continue to build her confidence. Come meet Petra and see if she's perfect for your home.
Come meet your new best friend
