Come on yall, I am adorable. Does no one get that?

This darling girl was found running stray and her owners were not looking for her though hard to say why as she is sweet as the day is long. "Freckles" got her name honestly, such a sweet speckled girl. When she wags her tail her whole body goes along with it. Freckles came to us when she caught our eye at the local shelter; it was as if she was saying "hey, over here, choose me PLEASE!" We are glad we did but are hoping her special someone will see her endearment soon. Meanwhile all of the volunteers love her dearly though that is not the same as having a forever home.

Freckles has been going home several times a week with one of the volunteers who has a nice big back yard that she loves to run and play in. After a nice romp, Freckles makes herself at home by taking a little snooze complete with snores. She has nice inside manners. Freckles loves to be with people and despite her size considers herself a lap dog. It appears she is going to be best as an only dog as she is selective over what dogs she is okay with so she is not a dog park kind of gal, but would love a yard to call her own and the undivided attention of her people or person.

We are really puzzled as to why no one has applied to adopt Freckles. She is such a character, enjoying any and all outings with her volunteer friends. She can even say do you want fries with that as one of her regular outings is a drive around town and a run through the local fast food drive through!

Freckles is 1 year old and weighs 53 lbs.
