Dog Available - Della



Della was owner surrendered and she adjusted to her foster home and schedule almost immediately.  She has not been crated while staying with her foster family. She arrived withsome skin and ear issues but they are both clearing up nicely. She tolerates baths well and in general does not object to grooming.  At night she finds a place to curl up on the floor and sleeps through the night.  When she went to the dog park and she did well and tended to stay near her fosters.  She has not chewed things that are not her dogs toys and treats, and has done no damage to the house.  She's very mellow except when she first greats you.  She could use a big red bow and would love to be under your Christmas tree.
