Matilda is a quiet and patient sweetheart who loves her humans more than anything in the universe. She rarely makes a peep, and would be thrilled if her every moment is spent snuggling with you. What better life could there be?!
This friendly girl loves going on walks and is happy to meet other canine friends on her walks. She is a dream when she's left home alone, whether in a crate or loose. Unless it's urgent, she won't push to go outside, and she embodies patience. She is also quite the smart lady, and never pulls on her leash. She has also mastered several skills like "sit," "down," and "stay".

If you invite her up, Matilda will be more than happy to oblige you for couch snuggles. In fact, if you were to quiz her, she'd likely say that cuddling is her absolute favorite pastime. 24/7 affection would be her ideal, although she is incredibly respectful if you don't feel it's the right time. Her love for being held is absolutely precious. As long as she can be close to you, she's one happy camper. When it comes to strangers, Matilda is the queen of the welcoming committee. She doesn't jump unless she's invited to, and will sit very patiently waiting for humans to come pet her. "Please pet me!" she hopes!

Matilda likes to play with her plush toys, and a good tug-o-war session with her ropes will put a smile on her face. She does fancy her balls, although this little lazy bones isn't a fan of fetch...she'd rather just lounge and chew on the balls. Honestly, she'd nap and hang around all day if you let her, and she'd be thrilled to bits!

Matilda is a total love, and makes sure you know just how much you mean to her everyday. She's so well mannered that she'd be a wonderful addition to lots of home situations.
She'd be great in an apartment or a larger home. She likes living a low-key life, but is also very adaptable. She can't wait to see you in the morning when you wake up, and can't wait to join and give you all her kisses and hugs. Come meet her and let her shower you with affection!
Come meet your new best friend
