Morning Glory loves being with people, and she's been very sweet and gentle with everyone she's met. She's very happy to be with them. When they are talking and laughing, she picks up that mood and starts smiling, wagging her tail and doing happy yaps. She's also such a fan of food! She loves it when her people give her petting and scratches -- and she's even happier when they give her food. When her foster is cooking or she smells treats, she sits next to him with a big smile so he'll hand her a snack.

Morning Glory is an elderly pup who has some mobility issues, but she enjoys going for short leash walks. She tags along nicely, stopping to sniff often, but happy to stroll on pavement or grass. Back home, this very low-key, easy-going lady is happy to snooze most of the day, and she loves lunch and dinner parties with her human friends.

She has perviously lived with cats and pays them no mind. She has also lived with a dog and is more of a coexister who prefers dogs on the calm side that give her space. She needs some help learning where the appropriate place to potty is. Frequent outings will help this senior girl out.

This shy, gentle lady will love to be a couch potato in a home with patient parents who can help her learn that her humans will come home again. She'll settle in nicely after she's taken on short walks and given those snacks and treats she loves. Come meet Morning Glory. Offer her a tasty treat and she'll follow you home.
Come meet your new best friend
