Satisfy your sweet tooth with Tootsie!

Hi, friends! My name is Tootsie, and I’m the sweetest 3-year-old, 58-pound Shepherd Mix you’ll ever meet.  I was rescued from the Riverside Shelter, where I was pulled in the nick of time off the euthanasia list.  I had just had 11 puppies.  Since then, I’ve been spayed and have been living the good life with my foster family!

I’m told that I’m a loving and submissive girl, who is a total people pleaser. I love to play with my squeaky toys, chew on my Nylabone, and zoom around to get all my energy out.  Most of all, though, I love being connected to and hanging out with my family.  I have mild separation anxiety that I’m working through, and I can become timid in new situations.  However, give me some positive encouragement and treats, and I’ll warm up to my surroundings in no time!

As far as my training goes, I am already potty-trained and crate-trained.  My leash manners are a work in progress (as I tend to pull), but I have no doubt that I’ll master them in no time.  After all, I’m a smart girl and a quick learner.  I’m also learning to heel, as well as how to sit and shake. 

Due to my gentle nature, I think I’d do great in a home with both kids and doggie siblings.  I’d also do well as the only child, though, but just as long as I was taken on enough walks each day and provided with enough stimulation.  Other than that, I’ll thrive with plenty of love and affection, as well as continued training. 

My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.
