8 year old • Female • 60 lbs
Blessed has medium-length golden fur with brown spots, a white muzzle, floppy ears, and soulful brown eyes.
Blessed loves being outside more than anything else, so it would be great if her adopter had a fenced-in yard, or is a very outdoorsy person with an outdoor space (deck/patio) safe for a dog to hang out in. Ms. “B” has come so far in discovering that people can be trustworthy and kind! She is sweet and gentle, especially noticeable in her leash manners and when taking treats from your hand. Sometimes she prefers to chill out in her safe place, and other times she will let you know she wants your attention. Despite her general low-key energy level, occasionally her joyful puppiness comes out. You will especially see this most when it’s time for a walk. She loves hanging out with my two small dogs, and is always happy when she sees her doggy neighbors. Blessed can be protective if she feels you are threatened. She is well house-trained. She should avoid flights of stairs. Despite her initial wariness, she has warmed up to my family and a couple of friends quite nicely. It will be hard to give her up, but finding her perfect forever family will help make that easier. I hope that is you!
Blessed is up-to-date with vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and has been spayed.
Blessed was surrendered to a rural shelter.
