Look at this gorgeous and regal lady! When she flashes that amazing smile, it will instantly melt your heart. She is an absolute bundle of joy, energy, play, affection, and devotion. Our favorite thing about Dutchess is her ability to communicate. You will know when she wants to play...because she will bring you a toy. She'll tell you when she needs to go out and she will understand you as much as you do her.

Dutchess may not be able to speak, but she's so expressive you will feel like you're talking to a best friend. She will be an incredible companion for the lucky human that takes her home. Equal parts of play and couch potato, and when she flashes that winning smile, you will fall for this special soul.

You can definitely count on Dutchess for playtime and chill mode. Her favorite games are tug and chasing toys, and we promise, just give her some belly rubs and she'll love you forever! While Dutchess loves exercise she can chill like a champ, and this girl will be your bestie forever. Come meet this regal supermodel, she's waiting to be your Dutchess!
Come meet your new best friend
