My story

I was kept on a chain in the back yard and haven't had much exposure to the world.  I'm far too friendly for that kind of life, so SPCA Auckland took me in and are helping me find a more suitable forever home where I can be a true member of the family.

What's special about me

I'm a very pretty and sociable girl and I don't have a mean bone in my body. I don't know much about the world but I think it's a very exciting place and I'm always eager to play with you or my canine friends.  

I'm particularly looking for someone with training experience to bring out the best in me.  Some struggle to match my high energy so I'm working on how to be calm and keep my focus. Luckily, I'm a fast learner and I pick up new ideas quickly.  I’m also a cheeky dog and keen to push the boundaries whenever I can, so please be firm and consistent with me! You must have high, sturdy fencing, but you’ll have to keep me busy as well – otherwise that fence will just be a challenge for me to find a way over.

If you’ve got a good sense of humour and are keen for an adventure, then I’m the dog for you.
