Meet Matilda.
This pretty dog has been let down by quite a few people in her life. She was found as a stray and taken in by some kindhearted people. She slept in a bed every night with a young girl and loved her time with them but the landlord kicked her out and she ended up at a crowded shelter. Long story short – she made her way to us and is now doing great.
Matilda is a very smart, athletic dog. She will thrive with a structured environment and lots of exercise. Matilda is a rough player and and loves playing hard with other dogs. Her play style is a bit much for most dogs and for that reason we think she would do best as an only dog.
She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on leash. Wed like to find a family with breed experience for Matilda.
Please email us for more information:
Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.
