Baby's a courageous little girl who is looking for a quiet and loving furever home. Shy and reserved when you first meet, Baby's is friendly and willing to give anyone a chance to love her. It won't take long before she's ready to cuddle with you. Her favorite spot is on the couch, preferably with you and with her head in your lap. You'll know she's comfortable when she starts to snore!

Something must have happened in Baby's past to make her a little defensive when being handled by the collar, so she's not a big fan of leashes. Her foster is working on that with her and Baby has been improving. Baby is smart and willing to give anyone a shot, so with a little patience and love, she might be able to put those bad memories in the past.

Baby's housetrained and will let you know when she's ready to go outside. Baby would do best in a calm, low activity home. She would love to have a fenced yard where she can run and play without being leashed. A friendly older dog sibling who is not too rambunctious would be great, too!

If you want a truly special dog to bond with and nurture, Baby is the perfect pup for you!
