We adopted Jenny this past September. She has a kitty brother that she is very sweet to. We tried several rescues before we found one that wouldn’t chase our cat. At 8 years old, she is content to sit by a warm fire and stay close to her family. She is so well behaved. We joke that she is almost too perfect. No drinking from the potty, counter surfing, or running away from home. She was an owner surrender and for the life of us we can’t figure out why anyone would surrender her. They don’t make dogs as good as her anymore. She is adored by her new forever family. -Amy Stone
