Available Dogs - Fluffy

Fluffy smiles hello

Fluffy is a senior girl, but there are moments when she is all smiles, tail wags and ready for a little active play.  Those are the moments that can make having a senior dog melt your heart.

She does have a bit of a nervous personality - so fast movements and clanking noises are not her favorite.

Fluffy likes her foster sister and enjoys watching her.  She feels reassured by having another dog around. She will follow her foster sister to wade in the water (creek, pond edge, puddle).

Fluffy has mega happy wags and smiles when her foster comes home after being away. And since she loves to be talked to, she's a great listener as you share the details of your day.  Who wouldn't want a greeting like that after a day at work?

Reminder for approved applicants - to apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email
