Dear Dog People, I live with my foster parents in a great home. They take good care of me and have taught me many new canine skills. I was once a stray dog with not very good manners and now I can walk on a leash, sit, stay, come, sleep in a crate, do all my personal business outside, play fetch, and ride in a car. My foster mom says I am quick to learn new tricks and I went to a special doggie swimming pool for lessons! My life has really turned around. Best of all I love to sit on the sofa with my head on my human's lap. I love being loved and I love giving love. I am best with a family who has big doggie experience. I never learned how to play with other animals when I was a puppy so I would do best as your only pet (all eyes on me please!) and because I am such a strong girl I should be walked by adults only! I'd really like to meet you! Since I'm in foster care, call the nice people at the animal shelter to set up an appointment to see me. We can play in one of the outdoor play areas and you can toss the ball! Paw-fully, Helga P.S. Call the shelter at 630-407-2800 or visit for more details on how to make me yours!
