Meet Good Girl!

GG is an 8.5 lb, 2 year old, house broken sweet girl who is still adjusting to being handled by humans. She races around circling her foster mom when she returns home from work and changes into a wiggling chatterbox. Most of the time she is happy chillin' on the sofa, going for car rides, and chasing the other dogs around. She is great on the hiking trail as long as you can carry plenty of water for her (with her pushed in nose she can easily overheat). If she gets thirsty in your car and there is a water bottle around she will start licking the cap to let you know she wants a drink. GG is crate trained, but her foster mom lets her have full reign. At night she likes to sleep at the foot of her foster mom's bed and she'll wake you with kisses and cuddles in the morning.

GG's new family will have to be patient with her nervousness about being picked up. Her foster mom has learned if she waits for GG to sit down that is her cue that it is okay to pick her up. She has improved tremendously since being rescued from the desert shelter and would do well with kids (7 and up) and/or other dogs. She is a good girl and getting used to being handled.

GG is being fostered in California.

If you would like more information, contact Carole. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
