Meet Rey! Rey came to us on sad circumstances and she was showing signs of fear of people. She has endured some trauma we can tell but is slowly trusting the staff and volunteers. Rey is initially stand-offish meeting new people and will require multiple visits from potential adopters prior to going to her new home. She definitely prefers the company of women to men. Once she knows you she is the sweetest and most loving dog on the planet! She is so happy to be with her people and cuddle. Rey enjoys walks, hikes and napping. She is good in the car for trips. Rey seems to be Ok with other cats and dogs with slow introductions. She is not suitable to go to a home with young children. Rey is bound to be such an amazing companion in a home. Please apply if you have a soft spot for gentle soft souls like Rey like need time to heal and ready to give so much love!
