TO BE KILLED - 3/17/2018
WEE, PETITE, SUPER SWEET & A CHAMPION SNUGGLER – ROUGE IS A DREAM!
A volunteer writes: They say great things come in small packages and in my experience, those packages usually have 4 legs & a whole lot of love tucked inside so when I spotted little Rouge waiting quietly in her den, expectations were high. Apparently not high enough because once we stepped into the yard and let loose the #leash , this tiny treasure quickly blew right past them and straight into the stratosphere of heavenly huggers! Her freckled wee body was a flurry of sweet snuggles and silly on-the-bench-off-the-bench antics and once treats were on offer she even showed off her begging skills, standing up on two legs & making the most adorable bunny hops in hopes of a reward. #Rouge arrived @Care Center with her beloved sister Candy Apple and though a little shy at first, she's an exceptionally people friendly gal too. She doesn't quite 'get' the idea of toys or fetch yet & leash walking is also a bit of a foreign concept but just think what a joy it will be making her into your beloved pet, spoiling her with treats, teaching her the ropes of going for a walk & showing her how much fun exploring the big, wide world can be once you have a forever family.
