Meet TESS! From the Dominican this gorgeous gal is searching far and wide for the perfect human companion AND special environment! She’s looking for someone with a big heart and the ability to set boundaries, empowering her to become her best self. Being the affectionate gal she is, we know she wants to be open to this form of love and companionship all the time, but in her currently state, is an extremely nervous dog. TESS is more cautious around male humans but will warm up with time and being pet under her chin rather than over her head. Currently working on her confidence, she’s shy around other dogs and can be reactive initially because of this, and has only met a few while on leash . She will do best continuing to meet laid-back dogs with proper introductions. TESS would do BESST if she had another dog companion I the home that can show her how to dog - As of now, he’s a total social butterfly with her foster fam’s CATS but is looking for a more canine like role model ;) TESS will definitely win you over and if you’ve got a cat of your own though it’s likely they’ll love her too. One awesome thing for her current foster is that TESS enjoys lazing about in the am right along with you (if you’re not much of a morning person) - And did we mention she’s a total nap-a-holic?! She loves a good Netflix marathon and will be happy to chill out with some toys to play with. Apply to adopt TESS today!
*WE WOULD PREFER TESS BE MOVED INTO A NEW HOME AS A FOSTER ON A TRIAL BASIS so we can decide what’s best for her and her potential new humans.*
