CongRATulations to the Gray family!

My name is Suzy and I am 6 years old. My foster mom saw a little something special in my eyes and saved me just in time from a high-kill shelter. I confess, I was a pleasantly plump little girl when I ended up in the shelter but I was placed on a healthy diet and I’ve shed the excess weight. You should see me now – I look and feel great!! I am now a lean 15 pounds and I’m 11 inches tall with beautiful erect ears and a cropped tail.  I am a little cautious when meeting new people, and I like to make the first move.  It always helps when you have a tasty treat for me, by the way.  Once I feel comfortable, I love to get rubbed and scratched and played with, and then rubbed some more.  I’m enjoying this big yard and the pool. I really enjoy playing around the pool, and my favorite game is when you throw my rubber ducky into the water and I fish it out.  I don’t really like to jump into the water but I do enjoy playing around it. I am great around children, and, oh my, how I love them. I just love running with them, following them on their bikes and having them toss me a toy. I enjoy my foster mom and dad too, because they let me sleep in the room in my own doggie bed and they take me on car rides and on walks in the mountain bike trails. My foster mom says I’m a great little girl who will make a great addition to any home and family. I am completely housebroken and walk great on a leash. I love children and other dogs. I haven’t been cat tested as my foster mom is allergic to them. I am not a yapper, I am very quiet. I do let out a bark or two when I hear someone at the door but I am quick to return to my bed and play with my toys. I promise to be your loving and loyal companion if you give me a chance – you won’t regret it. Come and take a look at my photo:

    Just wondering why you are giving her up?

    Hi, Kaci – we are not giving her up, one of our volunteers rescued her from a shelter, and now she is looking for a home. It is what rescue groups do. Millions of nice pets die in our nation’s shelters every year through no fault of their own. As resue volunteers, we step in, take them from death row, evaluate them, socialize them, get them healthy and ready to be members of loving families.

    We saw Suzy and just fell in love. My husband and I both want to add her to our family. Would it be possible to ‘skip’ filling out the whole online adoption form?
    We are only interested in having her as a pet, not a showdog.

    Hi, Christina. Everyone has to go through the approval process to adopt a dog from us. And all of our dogs are pets, not show dogs. A show dog has to be registered and intact, and our dogs come from death row in our nation’s shelters, are spayed and neutered, and are all looking for a home. We would love to have you apply to adopt Suzy.

    Hi! We filled out all the paperwork and our references were checked. We have a Rat Terrier about the same age. It seems like it has been a month since then. My wife spoke with Suzy’s foster mom and we live pretty close by. I am so worried that Suzy will face a harder if she gets attached to her foster family.

    Is Suzy still up for adoption or should we look elsewhere?
