Mixed Breed female, 2 years old and 40 pounds.

LOVELY TREASURE HAS BEEN STAYING AT THE CASA DE LAURA, on a great respite from shelter life. Here's what Laura told us: Treasure's been in foster care since February 16, and lives with 5 other dogs with whom she gets along. She’s a bit timid initially, but warms up quickly, and once she starts trusting, is very sweet and seeks out attention. She’s perfecting her “sit” and “down.” I’ve been feeding her by hand to develop trust and work on her obedience, and she’s responding well to it. SEE below for photos of Treasure at Casa de Laura, with some of her roomies!

UPDATE: Treasure went out for an off leash romp and photo session. At first, she was a bit shy. After 5 or 10 minutes, she came and sat down next to our volunteers, and even gave them a few kisses! Treasure will need some TLC and patience to help her gain confidence. And boy, is she ever worth it. This girl is so beautiful and sweet.

This lovely brindle girl will be your Treasure. Right now she's shy and a little nervous--the shelter can be daunting for some sensitive canine souls. Treasure is sweet, and she showed us that she wants to connect with people. She was interested in Chipper, the shelter's big, fluffy tester dog. Check back for updates as we get to know this Treasure.
