Ballerina is ready to dance her way into your lap and onto your couch!


The basics

  • My name is Ballerina
  • On my last birthday, I was 5
  • I am a girl
  • I've been homeless since August 18, 2016

The good stuff

  • My best trick is wearing my tutu! You might not think that's a trick, but trust me - not everyone can pull off a tutu.
  • Me in three words: shy, but sweet!
  • How I feel about other critters: I prefer to be the only pet and soak up all of your attention! Trust me; I'm worth it.
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is laying in the sunshine with a new toy! And dancing, natch...
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: being the perfect companion for a special someone, maybe even a family with older kids. I'm shy at first so am often overlooked, but as soon as I know I'm safe with you I'll be your friend forever. I came to Stray Rescue covered in scars and with a leg injury and have made a full recovery. I'm a happy, relaxed girl when I leave campus, but the shelter environment stresses me out...can you blame me? Please come get me - I can't wait to shower you with kisses! Oh, and because I've been in the shelter for so long, multiple meet and greets are required so that we can get acquainted, m'kay?

    I have been a volunteer at Stray Rescue for two years and Ballerina is my favorite dog and my best friend there. She would make an amazing pet and companion for anyone! She is beautiful, sweet, easy on a leash, loves to play fetch, loves to play in water, amazing car rider and great in a home (I’ve taken her home several times) and she is just all-around great dog! Please take a chance on her!!!
