Kiss is named well because she's so generous with her kisses. She's a very nice girl who's a little timid, but she enjoys meeting people. And she's especially interested in meeting their dogs - if they have them. Now in foster care, she meets dogs on walks and is nice to them. She knows a 10-lb puppy and lets it jump all over her! At home, she's a house-trained girl who will nudge you when she wants to go out. She is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet this sweet girl. She'll give you so many kisses.
