Dog of the week: Phoebe!

Meet Phoebe!

Phoebe is a sweet 2-3 year old Terrier mix. Phoebe came to us from a shelter in Ohio where she was picked up as a stray. Actually, she was picked up as a stray TWICE, but the second time her owner decided they didn't feel like coming to pick her up, so she was placed up for adoption.

Phoebe is very friendly and puppy-like. She gets along well with calm, submissive dogs, but is not a big fan of cats. It is unknown whether Phoebe would be ok with young kids (she tends to jump up during play and could hurt a very young child), but older, dog-savvy children would be fine. Her foster home thinks that she might like some kids to play with outside in a fenced, secure yard to get some of her energy out.

Phoebe is happy to run and play outside, but is also happy and quiet indoors. She loves to sleep on the couch next to you or on the floor by your feet, and is a well-behaved, easy-going girl.

Phoebe needs a bit of work on her manners and basic training (not jumping up, playing gently), and needs some work on-leash (she loves walks but tends to pull a bit), but overall she is a great, easy dog that is waiting for her forever family to come along. Could you be them?

If you would like to submit an application to adopt Phoebe, visit her Petfinder profile, or visit or website.

Happy adopting!
