Introducing Hershey, a house trained mixed breed pup who is as sweet as the chocolate she is named after! Hershey would be fine in a home with other dogs. Hershey loves to be off-leash at dog parks and does really well with other dogs. She loves to wrestle with her best dog-friend, Charlie. She also loves to just cuddle on the couch.

Hershey is the most affectionate dog her foster has ever met. She got her name because not only is she chocolate-colored but she LOVES to give kisses. She constantly wants to cuddle and will lay her head on your shoulder or in your lap anytime! Hershey loves new people. She gets excited and is very affectionate right away. Hershey loves to get on her hind-legs to give hugs or dance with you!

Hershey does well in her crate and can also be left to free-roam. She does okay while she's home alone, which means you can relax while you are out and about running your errands. She has been known to dig in the yard and love training and redirection. This sweet lady would also love training with leash pulling, yard digging, and barking out the window.

Hershey comes when called and sits when told. She doesn't have the "stay command down yet, but she is working on it, and her foster is trying to teach her to "be quiet. Hershey will be a very obedient dog with time and patience. Hershey is generally well-behaved. She loves to play and cuddle and is not destructive

Hershey would fit well with most homes including those with children, cats and other dogs. She would prefer parents who are available for consistent attention and affection and a dog-sibling to play and wrestle with.

Do you have room in your home and a place in your heart for the sweet chocolate Hershey? Come meet Hershey today!
