"How fabulous is my smile? I'm a middle-aged gal who is way past the puppy stage. My ideal family would be someone who holds a quiet home without a lot of commotion. I do love going for daily walks but prefer to be snuggled up on the couch resting. If you think I'm the gal for you, meet me here!"

"If you are looking for a cat that is really more like a dog, then I'm your guy! I will need someone who is willing to play with me several times a day since I have a lot of energy. Once I calm down, I love to curl up in your lap and take a nap! Check me out here!"

"Fun fact about me? I'm currently living at a self-care yoga retreat, and I'm loving life here! The staff says that I keep them on their toes between the mass amount of snuggles I ask for and my energy level, but I think it's all out of love. I will need an active owner who is willing to take me for a daily walk to wear me out. If you think I'm the guy for you, look me up here!"
