Cartwheel is an absolute sweetheart with a smooth velvety coat that is soft and shiny. This girl is always happy and loves knowing what is going on. She really enjoys sitting near her people and taking as many belly rubs and they can give her. Then she's happy to play with her fur toy.

This playful, active girl loves to take walks, looking with amazement at kids she sees. And she plays ball with gusto. She's a curious, confident girl who's always interested in meeting new people. When she meets new dogs, she takes time to get acquainted and play with them. And she's a house-trained lady who peacefully and quietly sleeps in the crate all night long and does well there when her people are away.

Cartwheel would love a home with a yard where she can watch those birds and squirrels and run around in the grass. She also loves coming in for grooming. Come meet this sweet lady, she will make you do cartwheels!



INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
