Melly

Cuddly Melly looking for a fur-ever family

Melly is a super cuddly gal and would be the perfect addition to any family! She is fairly high energy and loves to walk and sniff and investigate the neighborhood, but she is also happy to sleep at home and relax, as long as she can be in the same room as her people. She also appreciates any chance to play with dog friends or run around and chase a ball. She loves to end her day with cuddles and kisses and scratches and treats! She also loves to practice her tricks for food and is currently working on 'spin'. She is excited to meet all people, but needs to work on greeting new friends with all 4 paws on the floor. Her ideal family would be able to offer a lot of quality time and exercise. She can stay home for a good amount of time, but is a willing companion for errands or outdoor adventures.
