China is an spirited girl who LOVES playing fetch. China bounces from one end of the play yard to the other, so happy she's getting to chase after tennis balls. And if her person doesn't throw that first ball fast enough, she'll run to the bucket holding the balls and paw at it to say "Right here, human!"

China doesn't have much hair, but she has a big heart and loves all her human friends at the shelter. If China's experienced a lack of kindness in her past, she doesn't hold it against anyone. She just wants to find her humans and play play play!

China settles down nicely in her kennel and waits patiently for someone to take her out, but once she's out, this energetic girl is rarin' to go. China's also gotten along well with the dogs in playgroup and should be able to go home with a well-matched doggie sibling.

Sweet and fun-loving, China would make a wonderful companion to any number of loving homes. She doesn't ask for much - a nice walk, a game of fetch, some TLC and this precious lady will love you forever. Come meet China!
