Myrtle is a sweet lab-mix lady who is looking for her forever Valentine!

This little love bug wriggles her booty with joy any time you get close, and nuzzles in for cuddles and pats. Myrtle is a precious girl who loves to be close to you, whether that's playing a game of fetch, or gnawing on a puzzle toy near you while you work.

Myrtle is also an extremely easy going pup. She is eager to please and easy to communicate with. She is already house trained, crate trained, and knows "sit. She generally walks well on a leash, with occasional slight pulling. When excited, she sometimes jumps up on people, but her fosters are working on that and she is getting better.

While Myrtle warms up rapidly to her foster home and family, she can be a bit anxious in new settings and with new people, and would likely do best in a low-traffic home.

This sweet young thing is looking for love, and she hopes it will be with you! Come meet this sweet lass today, she'd love to show off her butt wriggle.
Come meet your new best friend
