Available Dogs - Karlie

Karlie loves her ball

Karlie is an absolute sweetheart ready to give you all her love and attention! She loves her people and is a smart girl who aims to please. She knows how to sit, shake, stay, and will even give you a high five if you ask! Karlie LOVES belly rubs and cuddles and will nicely ask you for more pets. 

She has excellent house manners- no counter surfing, sticks to her toys and doesn’t have interest in human food. Karlie’s pretty chill in the house but also loves playing fetch and running outside. She doesn’t like loud noises, but as long as she’s with her people (or wrapped in a comfy blanket during a thunderstorm), she feels safe. At home she wants to be by her people at all times, but does well in her crate overnight or when her people go out. 

Karlie must be the only dog in the home. Although Karlie is able to get along with other dogs, she has also shown she does not get along with all dogs. She should be closely monitored when around other dogs so dog parks are not her thing. She does best on leash around other dogs.

This sweet girl has so much love to give! Could you be the family for her?
