Gwyn is looking for a loving home with a couch that she can lay on all day while she waits for you to give her attention. She wants nothing more than to be petted by her humans. If you stop, she will remind you to keep going with a nudge of her paw. She has never met a person she didn't like, and the silliest thing about her is when her tail wags too fast.

Gwyn is potty trained and walks well on a leash. Squirrels are her favorite thing to chase, so you will need to keep a tight hold on the leash in case she sees one. She is very treat-motivated and loves to please, so she would be easy to train!

Gwyn is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she will need rest while she receives treatment at APA!'s expense. She would do well in both a home or apartment (as long as she is able to get plenty of exercise). She could also do well in a high fenced yard to make sure the thrill of chasing down a squirrel doesn't let her escape. She has not had experience with kids, but due to her friendly, tolerant nature I believe she would do well with kids who are old enough to know when she wants attention and when to give her space.

Gwyn would make a wonderful Netflix watching companion to someone who can give her the attention she craves. See more photos and videos of Gwyn on her Instagram @good_girl_gwyn. Come meet Gwyn, she's waiting to nudge you with her sweet paw!
