Here are Pants you won't want to return! Pants is a gentle soul looking to bring her low-key lifestyle to your home. She is currently staying in an APA! foster home where she is getting used to the creature comforts she deserves!

Pants has a shy nature and will take a bit of time to trust new people and environments. But with some time, her sweet, friendly nature shines through. She is very polite, respects boundaries and can be left alone in the home with no problems. Pants loves to curl up next to you on the couch but also enjoys relaxing in her crate. Pants is a smart girl who quickly picks up new skills, including crate-training and potty-training.

Pants is still figuring out toys but loves chewing on bones and has a special squeaky toy that she's grown to love. It's outside where Pants will perk up the most! She is great on a leash - she loves to stop and smell everything in sight. You'll see the happy side of her personality when you take her for her daily walks. Whenever she can, she will roll around in the grass, happy as can be.

Despite being a shy girl, Pants does pretty well when meeting strangers. She could also live with a well-matched dog friend, though it seems that she prefers dogs that are smaller than her.
Pants has a medium to low activity level. She's looking for a patient family willing to earn her trust with treats, pets and walks. She's a low-key girl who is quickly learning that living with people is fun, and she's come so far already.

Pants wants to be your forever pup! No returns for this sweet girl!
Come meet your new best friend
