Nettle is a very easy going lady. Do you want to go out for walks? She'll be so glad to go with you. Would you rather relax or do your work at home? She'll be glad to relax with you, chilling out on the couch and playing with her toys.

This active, playful girl is excited to go for her walks, pulling on her leash at first and trying to go play with other animals she hears or sees, but then she slows down. When this curious girl meets new people, including kids, she's very kind and considerate, just hoping for their petting.

At home, she's a very loving girl who likes to cuddle with her foster dad, kissing to show her affection. She answers to "sit" and is making good progress on responding well to "stay," understanding her place on the couch. She is well house-trained and does great when left to freely roam when her foster is away. She has a bit of anxiety when alone that causes a leak, but she's willing to work on it.

Nettle will love a home with a parent who shows her affection and likes taking her for walks. She'll be happy to lounge on a couch in an apartment. Come meet her and she'll give you a kiss.
Come meet your new best friend
