This gorgeous girl is ready to find her forever home. She came into our care after spending many of her days in a crate and would love a place where she can stretch out freely. Selina is nervous when meeting new people and lets out a big bark upon first greetings. She will need lots of socialization to overcome her stranger-danger fears. Once she knows that you are there to make friends, she snuggles up for chin scratches and belly rubs.
Selina loves stuffy toys and playing fetch, but is still working on drop-it as part of the game rules. She is a pro-walker and loves to look back for check-ins frequently, as well as a little pat on the head for reassurance that she is indeed a good girl.
Her ideal home would be with dog-experienced guardians who can help her build up her confidence, work on her reactivity, and give her the exercise she craves.
