  Meet Dora!

Dora came from a loving home and it shows. She is a happy, playful girl who adores people and other dogs. She is a vibrant young 5 year old who was always fed the healthiest food and received the best care. She is 17 lbs. She has adjusted quickly to her foster home, has made friends with the other dogs (but she likes attention, so shouldn’t be in a home with many others) and is extremely affectionate. She loves sleeping in bed with the humans and other dogs.

Dora is enjoying her walks around the block and playing in the fenced back yard. She likes car rides and playing with toys. She also likes lying on the back of the sofa looking out the window with her foster sister. And she adores pets and tummy rubs. Her recent grooming doesn’t show off her beautiful full copper colored coat.

The foster home she is in places down puppy pads for the smaller dogs. Dora is shy about toileting while people are watching, but will go if left to roam a few minutes in the back yard. Otherwise she has been using the pads. She would easily adapt to new circumstances. She is not crated in her foster home as she can be trusted to behave properly. She has used a crate in the past, however.

Dora has deep soulful eyes which reflect intelligence and sensitivity. She is highly attuned and is reactive to the feelings of those around her. She is a true Velcro Griff. She should be placed in a loving and gentle environment where she will receive lots of special attention. She deserves it!

Dora is being fostered in the Tampa FL area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki at vboneill@optonline.net.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
