Hi I'm Wren, and I'd love to be a part of your family! Well, that's if you give me lots of cuddles and pets of course.

I love getting really close to my foster owners for pets, snuggles on the floor, and just hanging out. I am starting to learn that I can't steal their attention all the time when my foster parents are working, so I'm learning to entertain myself slowly but surely.

I really like going for walks and exploring, but not exploring so much that I'm pulling on my leash. I like to sniff plants, grass, and of course look for squirrels. The best is when strangers come up to me and pet me too! Other dogs I don't pay too much attention to because they can't pet me.

I eat my food during breakfast and dinner, but occasionally will save a little snack for later. I'm pretty good about going potty on time. Right before bedtime in my kennel we go outside one more time and then I go inside with a treat to settle in for the night. I don't bark or make a peep because I know tomorrow will be another great day!

My perfect home would be with a family that would give me lots of attention. The more people in the home, the better! I'm not sure how I would like living with another dog because I would want all the attention, but I could enjoy living with a well-matched doggie. A yard to go frequent sniffing or taking me on frequent walks would be ideal. Although I haven't interacted with many kids, I think I would make great friends with them as they grow up!

Let's meet so I can cuddle up with you!
