If you're an entertainer who loves to be admired while you're rehearsing, Kenya will be your fan! In her foster home, she's really been welcoming actors who come and go for play rehearsals, sitting at their feet and watching their performances. If she could applaud with her paws, she definitely would.

This quirky girl can be a hilarious entertainer, too. She likes to lounge and nap at her human friends' feet, but occasionally will nudge her nose under their hands to get cuddled, scratched and petted. Very sweet! She also loves to go on walks, leash walking very well with just some pulling when she's curious about dogs she sees.

At home, she's very affectionate with everyone in the family. She's a calm girl who likes to snuggle and snooze on the teenage daughter's bed or just lounge at her foster's feet while she works. She understands "sit," "no" and "stay." And she's a house-trained girl who free roams the house, sleeping nicely overnight and while she's home alone.

This relaxed, very chill girl will fit well in an easy-going home where she can lounge and admire her family. Come meet her. She'll be your fan and want your autograph - and cuddles.
Come meet your new best friend
