Every once in a while, a dog comes into the shelter that chooses to trust you the most; Little Edie chose me. I can’t tell you why she chose me, but I can tell you about my first interaction with her and all the great things I have learned about her since.
One of the things I have learned about Little Edie is that she bonds closely with the person that she chooses. Each morning, upon arriving to work, I great her with a “Little Edie, Little Edie!” in a sing-song, baby voice which she loves; her whole face lights up and she gets the wiggly-butt until I walk over to give her some morning affection. She loves this routine and I think it is part of why we are such good friends. I’ve also learned that Little Edie is a smart girl; she learned to sit in a matter of minutes so just imagine what else she can learn in a home! If you want a dog that isn’t too big and isn’t too small, then Little Edie may be exactly what you have been searching for---she is a petite 30 lbs or so and would love to live indoors with you. She is playful, affectionate, and so much more. However, despite all of these awesome qualities, there is a factor that is hindering Little Edie’s search for a new home.
Little Edie’s adoption fee has been fully sponsored, which means you can adopt her at no charge once your application is approved. She is already spayed, microchipped, and has tested negative for heartworms so she can began settling into her new home the very same day as adoption!
