Tess is a beautiful, intelligent and lovable girl who is great with other dogs. She has a gentle nature and is playful with both humans and other canines alike

Tess loves going for car rides and being included in family adventures. Anywhere you’re going, she wants to come too, especially if it means getting to explore new places! She is currently learning how to play with toys and basically be a dog. She would be best rehomed with another dog with whom she can play and learn from. Tess knows some basic commands, including sit, drop, shake with both front feet, and roll over. She is a smart cookie, and very willing to please, so with a bit of time and patience she will benefit greatly from obedience training.

Tess is very afraid of thunderstorms and bad weather (wind, heavy rain). If she is left unattended in the backyard during a storm, she will dig or jump/climb fences to try and escape. Her new home must be willing to put measures in place to stop her from escaping and work with her through her anxiety during storms.

Tess will be suited to a home without cats or other small animals due to her curiosity and tendency to chase. She needs daily exercise and walks wonderfully on a harness. She enjoys playing tug-o-war with dogs and/or humans and is quite active. Tess enjoys going to the dog park, meeting new dogs and running around.

Tess is a very loyal and loving dog who will make someone very happy. Tess would love to be part of an active family that have time to share their love and affection. She will lap up every bit of it, and return it in spades.
