Tiana's nickname is Queen of Chairs. She often has a chair in her kennel. She knows she's a regal lady, but she will ask permission to get on a chair or sofa, and her friends love seeing her up on hers. She is senior and at nearly 12 years old, shelter life is particularly hard for her. But although her bones would be far happier on a soft bed of her own, she has a spirit that will fill your life with smiles and happiness at helping her find her way home.

Tiana is one of those ladies who will always be a kid at heart, and she can swim like a fish and climb hills with the best of them. She is absolutely at her happiest out in nature and with people she loves and trusts. Patio bars and social scenes just aren't her vibe and make her uncomfortable. So many of us prefer a simple life, she's just one of those.

Her friends love her so much. All they really want is for her to get out of the shelter life she's living and find someone who is open to letting her unwrap the best and brightest love she has to give. Maybe it's you!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
