Serendipity is a quiet and stoic beauty who's just starting to work out how this beloved family dog thing works. It's very endearing watching her progress each day - her tail wags a bit more and she's starting to display some play behavior towards her foster doggie siblings.

Serendipity has an endearing way of keeping her foster mom within her line of vision, whether laying down somewhere where she can see her or following her around the house like an adorable shadow, all the while observing whatever's going on with those sweet and soulful eyes.

Serendipity is fully house-trained and is making good progress on her crate-training. She's looking for a quiet household and maybe a chill doggie sibling or two to help show her the ropes and build up her confidence. If that sounds like yours, come meet this sweet girl!
