Mary Puppins is enjoying her new life. Now in foster care, she comes up to her fosters for scratches and loves every bit of the attention she gets. Outside, she follows them around and gently leans against them when she can. Indoors, she's learning about hanging out on the couch and getting pets and snuggles.

Mary is a calm, easygoing girl who likes hanging out at home, checking out the backyard with her doggie housemates. She's so funny when she goes bug hunting, especially those buzzing cicadas in the grass. Then she comes back in to chew her toys, cool off on the tile floor and snuggle on the couch with her fosters. She's recovering from parvo and distemper and working on getting in shape to go on those adventures she's looking forward to. Meanwhile, she's happy to take naps. She's also working on her house-training, and she does well in her x-pen at night and when her fosters are away.

This gentle, playful girl hopes to be indoors most of the time with the people she loves. She'll also enjoy an area where she can hang out with a calm, sometimes playful dog buddy. Come meet this beautiful girl!
