Angel is so well named. She is an angelic lady who loves people. She especially loves to get their petting and belly rubs. In return, she gives them kisses and hopes to cuddle with them. She can be a bit timid when she first meets someone, but her tail quickly starts wagging and she rolls over for those belly rubs.

Now in foster care, she's curious about her new home and loves getting attention. If someone is sitting on the floor, she wants to be a lap dog and give leg and face kisses. She can be an independent girl, though. She's comfortable to go off and snooze alone. She loves going for walks and really enjoys them, pulling out of excitement. She has mammary and backend masses that may need to be removed and arthritis in her back legs, so she comes home tired and rests. She is house-trained and will woof when she wants to go outside, but she does have a leakage problem and wears a diaper. She sleeps in her crate most nights or outside it on the carpet, and she snoozes nicely when home alone.

Angel is a very easy-going lady who will love a home with new parents who are home a lot. She will love to cuddle with them, but doesn't require it. She should enjoy a dog buddy, but will be very happy and content to be the only pet. Come meet her. She'll be so happy to be your new best friend!
