Available Dogs - Tabitha

I am a sweet little girl who will fit in anywhere I can get snuggles and love. My favorite time of day is at night when I get to curl up on the sofa with my foster mom or dad and watch “trash” TV.

I sleep in my crate and eat very politely right beside my friend, then we each lick both bowls! Just want to make sure that her plate is clean! I love treats and will do what you want me to do to get them.  I chew bones and antlers and sometimes get into paper, but I mind my manners about other things. I do my business during walks or outside.

I like to play with the dog I live with now but sometimes she gets tired of me because I am a spring chicken, and she is on old hen. I am full of energy, so I love getting a lot of play time in my big yard.

Want an exercise partner or playmate? I am your girl!
