"I'm your loyal buddy and will stand by you forever. Also, can you pet me some more?"

Sweet Pea is a beautiful young lady whose tail is always wagging. She has a soft, shiny coat with brindle patches, and she absolutely loves affection. Sweet Pea follows her foster mom everywhere she goes and wants to be wherever she is, politely placing her paw on her lap to remind her it's time for some pets. Although loving and being loved on by people are her favorite pastimes, she also enjoys playing fetch, but really, Sweet Pea's favorite thing to do is whatever you're doing. She's just as happy to go outside and play with you as she is having a lazy day watching movies by your side.

Sweet Pea also has good manners in the home. She's fully house and crate-trained, she knows "sit" and "paw" and responds well to "uh-uh" when you want her to stop doing something. She's a very quiet companion and will happily chew on her toys when she's not reminding you it's time for some snuggles. She also met her foster's 5 year-old nephew, and she did really well with him. She'd sit next to him, let him play with her and she kissed him a few times!

Sweet Pea would love a home with people who will give her plenty of time to cuddle with her. Other than that, she really doesn't need much. Give this girl love and affection and she's one happy camper. Come meet her!
