Sweet and loyal Selena is looking for people to call her own! This girl loves with all her heart once she has decided to adopt you as her own. She really is just happy being with her person, however she needs a person who understands the fear of a rescue dog and is willing to be slow and easy with introducing her to new things.
She loves daily walks and will remind you if you forget. She is a joy to walk, doesn't pull and is very gentle and respectful of how much leash she has. She is a happy girl who dances when she knows it's walk time and loves grassy fields to play in!
Selena is good in the crate, only crying for a minute or two before settling. She is not destructive when left free in the home and she is doing fantastic at house training. Selena is good around older children around 6 and up. She is still learning to trust and needs gentle hands and words. She responds more to praise than treats.
From her foster mom: What I want people to know about Selena is that you will fall quickly for this beautiful girl but she will need time. Once this happens she will be your person. If you push her too fast...she will become fearful. If you take your time with this gentle girl...she will bring you joy and laughter. She really is sweet!
