If you are looking for a sweet, gentle, nature pup, then you must meet this gorgeous girl. Hero is ready to find her hero and could also be yours. This girl is sweet, sensitive and kind. She was also recently a doting mother to 7 precious puppies that she took amazing care of. Now that they have moved on to their forever homes, Hero is ready for her turn. She has so much love to give and is ready to find her forever so that she can settle in and share the love.

Hero loves to be outside and feels most at ease surrounded by nature in her foster's backyard. She is learning that life as a part family in a home is pretty awesome too. She will explore the house and enjoys finding her foster dog sibling to help show her the comfiest spots to take a nap. Hero is working on being a brave pup and her foster dog brother helps her out with that too, showing her how cool people are and that they give you tasty snacks like her favorite Puperonis. Hero is well behaved in the home and knows when to turn on her playful side in the yard, zooming with her foster bro and tossing around a good squeaky toy.

We can tell that Hero has not always had the comfiest life, she is still young and learning all about the world. She would love a family to help continue to learn how awesome the world can be and continue to build her confidence. She is working on her leash skills and her foster is helping her learn to be brave on leash in this wil world we live in. She would find a family that is ready to take it slow with her, show her the world and would really love a dog buddy to keep her company along the way.
