Are you working at home and need a very quiet background for your Zoom calls? Then come meet Geri. This easygoing lady will be happy to lounge quietly and gaze out the window at the world going by. Or she'll snuggle up on her bed or the couch, gently snoozing.

This sweet, docile girl is a cuddle bug who loves to wiggle close to her human friends and roll over for belly rubs. She gets such a big smile on her face while her tummy is tickled, and then she falls asleep. Such a compliant, well-behaved girl, she recently joined a friend to warm up in a car during the snowstorm power outage, sitting quietly in the passenger seat for three hours, content to look out the window.

Geri has been on many neighborhood walks, pulling hard on her leash when she sees squirrels and cats. She's a smart fast learner and understands "sit and "shake. On her walks, she's making progress on obeying "sit when she sees those furry critters. She is house trained and will happily sit at the door waiting to be let outside to do her business. In a foster home, she's been free to roam, doing great without a crate. And she loves playing fetch.

Geri's ideal home would be quiet and low traffic, where she's the center of your animal world. She's a docile, loving girl who's so endearing and she deserves a home that needs a Netflix buddy. Come meet her! And you can follow her on Instagram here: @geri.gurl.at.apa.
