"I'm new to the shelter so the staff is still getting to know me. My ideal new family would be relaxed and up for a good long nap in the afternoon. I don't require an active family because I like lounging around the house. I'm pretty easy-going and just ask that you take me for a short walk in the afternoon. Give me a chance, here!"

"I came to the Baltimore Humane Society as a transfer, so my past is a mystery to the staff. I can tell you that I am a very happy girl and I love to get as many scratches as I can. I'm a really great gal and hope that you come to the shelter to find that out for yourself. Make me yours, here!"

"I'm an easy-going girl who just wants to either be with you as much as I can or to lounge on the couch while you are doing your thing. I already know how to walk well on a leash, sit, and paw.
