When it comes to the art of cuddling, Effie has perfected it! Coming to APA as a pregnant momma, Effie nursed and raised her ten puppies until they were off to their own homes. Now, Effie is ready to find a home of her own! She's the perfect pup for someone looking for a companion to spend some time watching Netflix, going on walks, and sharing ice cream.

Effie does a great job at home, and would be a great fit for an owner who finds themselves out of the house. She enjoys her time sleeping on the couch or your bed while you're gone, and she'll be the first one to greet you at the door when you get home. Her favorite pastime is getting cuddles from her owner, and she'll make sure you remember to show her some attention. She does well on her own but has had a few interactions with other dogs. She's a little skeptical at first but warms up to them after a while.

Effie is all around the perfect dog - she's just looking for the perfect home! If you're searching for a new four-legged companion, this floppy-eared shepherd is waiting for you! Come meet her today!
