Oprah can be inquisitive, lively, and loving when it comes to exploring life. Get her fluffy squirrel toy out, and you'll get a chance to play a game of tug. Or get out a Jolly Ball and watch her try to get the entire thing in her mouth. She will keep you and herself entertained. And those floppy ears are just too much!

This little girl is serious about being with and trusting her close humans. It can take several play sessions before she lets you into her circle of trust, which you'll know you are there when she puts her head on your lap and her paw in your hand. It will melt your heart! Once in the circle, she will follow you around, bring you toys for playing, and lean in for snuggles. Like the trust she prefers to have with humans, she also feels the same about other dogs. She is happy to be the only pup or live with a well-matched dog sibling.

Oprah would love a low-traffic, adult-only home with humans that appreciate routine and consistency as much as she does. A yard to run and play in would be ideal, as dog parks and pesky squirrels can be overwhelming for this girl. She is always ready to be your copilot, nestled perfectly between the seats, to any of the less traveled trails for a walk. And when it is time to relax, she is happy to bring a toy or two and snuggle either on your lap or right up next to you on the sofa.

Oprah is all about training and eager to continue learning. She is a TOP (Total Obedience Program) dog at APA!. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193.

Are you looking for a girl to entertain you with her silly, smart, and sassy personality? Oprah and her fluffy squirrel are ready to meet you! Follow her @oprah.thesquirrelgirl

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.
