About Me:

Hi I'm Carla!

I came from a very loving home, where a very unfortunate situation forced me to be surrendered to WAG. I am absolutely heartbroken to be away from my family.

I love when I see my friends, I get really happy and come right up to you to get a treat or a pat!

Sometimes when we're out in the yard, I crave affection way more than playing with toys.

Meeting the vet for the first time made me a little nervous, but with lots of breaks, and treats they made me feel more comfortable.

I love to ride in the car, and do well with other dogs! I have been around children in the past and have been great.

I am happy to see people and am learning to enjoy wearing a harness to go out on walks, but at the same time can also be very nervous. I will thrive in a calm, nurturing environment with people that will pay attention to any signs of anxiety I may show.

In my past home I lived with 2 other dogs, Buddy being one. I met one of the boys at the shelter Cal and loved him too!

I'm being very polite while living at the shelter, but I'd much prefer a loving home that will spend time with me.

I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years. A little bit of training with my new family would also be beneficial to all of us. I can't wait to find my forever home.

My Perfect Match:

-Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. I am fearful of strangers when I first meet them.
- A family with patience
- Understanding that a lot of things are new to me, I may need time to adjust to my new surrounding
- Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me gain confidence and give my family the
tools they will need when I come across something that is scary to me
-Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus for morning zoomies! If not, being okay with using a long line to allow freedom but keep me safe.
-Will love me forever no matter what, quirks and all!
