Sweet Pea

The basics

  • My name is Sweet Pea
  • On my last birthday, I was 1
  • I am a girl
  • I've been homeless since August 1, 2020

The good stuff

  • My best trick is fetch! I love running after any kind of toy, bringing it back and dropping it on command. And then doing it again. And again. And...well, you get the idea.
  • Me in three words: smart, loving, and playful
  • How I feel about other critters: Sometimes I bark at new dogs or new people because I'm nervous, but once I get to know them I'm cool! I respond well to the 'look at that' command (and some treats) to redirect my attention. So let's just say that I'm a work in progress, but who isn't - m'iright? I'd love my new humans to work with me to help me feel more confident around new acquaintances! Oh, and no cats - pul-eeze!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to play with toys, especially the squeaky ones! Car rides are my second fave. I like lying on the console to watch the road and to be as close to you as possible.
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a quiet, dog-experienced household without cats or small kiddos. Ideally I'd like to bond with one special human who'll be dedicated to my continued learning. I'd love to explore more as I'm discovering that I adore adventure! Still, I can be nervous of new situations and need people who understand that some days I just need my familiar routine. I do have a health condition, but am doing well and am in remission. I’m part of the shelter's Angel Pet Program, which means the shelter clinic will continue covering care for my condition - pawsome!!”
