Vera Bradley is an easy-going, sweet lady who loves to nap and be around her favorite people. She just loves people in general and has never met a human she didn't like! She loves them so much that she shadows them and wants to be where all the people are. She is very polite and will greet everyone she meets with a smile and a tail-wag. She also has expressive eyes that tell you how curious she is about the world!

When you bring a squeaky toy around, get ready for Vera to play a good game of fetch, or even throw the toys around and play by herself. She has bouts of playfulness with her toys but easily chills out to take a nap by the window. On top of being a loving, playful girl, she also has great manners. She knows several commands and does well on the leash... so good in fact that you might have to encourage her to keep up the pace because she has stopped to smell the roses! She listens to her humans and can be left alone without displaying destructive behavior. She has also exhibited good behavior with other dogs and children.

Vera is an instant companion and is friendly, affectionate, and well-behaved. Come meet this girl!
