Little's got alotta love
This golden-eyed beauty is simply too good for words. She is one of the shelter's sweetest, most gentle girls.
Little arrived at the shelter at the beginning of August and surprisingly, here she remains: an angel waiting for the luckiest person or family in the world to call her own.
Little is only her name - but her enthusiasm, her love, her loyalty, and her ability to find pleasure in the simple things are all larger than life! This girl's got a big heart and an even bigger need to please you, her person. Little only has eyes for her handlers as they stroll through Aquatic Park on a sunny morning, glancing back occasionally to make sure all is well.
She is a quiet dog, rarely barking or causing a fuss. Calm and mellow describe this big girl - she's a "cool cat", alright. Happy to simply chill out with you on a bench or jog along beside you. Not only does Little like people, but she enjoys the company of other dogs, too. She's also so gentle that we believe she'd be a wonderful companion to a family with children. Upon her arrival at BACS, Little sat patiently while being collared and while waiting at doors and side walks. She also walked like a lady, never pulling on the leash or displaying rude doggy manners.
Unfortunately, about 2 months into Little's stay at BACS, an incident occurred where she was nipped on the snout by a dog that was passing her kennel! Since then, Little has become difficult to collar. She was so spooked by that other dog, that now the kennel is her least favorite place to be in the whole world! SO eager to be away from the barking and howling, she becomes over excited when you enter her kennel with a collar and leash and all she wants to do is jump and play. ("Hurray! You've come to take me away!")
But once Little is outside, she immediately relaxes and once again she becomes the gentle giant and loving girl that so many volunteers have come to know and love.
One of those volunteers is Larry, whom for the past few weeks, has taken her for a walk every day (rain or shine!) around the lake at Aquatic Park. (Go Larry!) He describes her as a "sweet honey" - saying that she's such a good girl! He is often stopped while on his walk and complimented on his well behaved dog. Larry says she is so gentle and pleasant when they encounter other people and dogs on their walk together.
Little is a very great dog and it's about time she found her forever home. Wouldn't you agree?
Perhaps Little is just the dog you've been looking for...
