Here’s Pretzel! Our little girl is finally better and ready to start finding her forever family. She was very sick for several weeks, and we know everyone prayed she would get better. We can’t thank everyone enough for their donations to help with her medical expenses. She had terrific fosters who stayed up with her at night, gave her the required breathing treatments and meds for several weeks. We couldn’t have done this without them!

Pretzel is the sweetest, most loving companion who will steal your heart in an instant! Her gorgeous brown coat, puppy dog eyes, and petite size look like something straight out of a movie. Pretzel loves being loved and could lay by your side cuddling or getting a nice belly rub for hours. She also makes sure to let you know if she wants to be pet some more by laying a gentle paw on your hand, giving a sweet nudge with her nose, or some other adorable gesture.

Pretzel’s temperament is nearly perfect, being an ideal balance between playful and calm, and will fit most lifestyles. As for toys, Pretzel gets excited to chase toys of all shapes and sizes but is still learning the concept of fetch, but she is figuring it out.

Pretzel loves to lay on the couch and will often hop up to be with her family. She is also excellent on walks as she doesn’t pull and isn’t distracted often. She will stay by your side. As for her commands, Pretzel knows most basic instructions like sit, stay, come, and down.

Pretzel is eager to please, and at her young age in combination with her laser focus to earn treats, she would be easily trainable with other more complex commands. In the few weeks, her foster family has been with her, she learned several commands and has begun to sit and stay before leaving the house, and before eating her meals.

This fun-loving three-year-old is extraordinarily loyal and likes to be near her owners all the time, following them everywhere. She is good at meeting dogs and new people, although she does sometimes hop on them in her excitement. This jumping is not with any malicious intent, though, and would be easily fixable with the proper training.

Pretzel sleeps through the night without any complications. She is completely housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go outside.

We have to delay Pretzel’s spay due to her illness; her new family will need to sign a “Spay Contract,” agreeing to take her to our vet, to undergo surgery. This little girl has been through so much we would let her heal and get stronger before putting her through surgery.

Pretzel is vaccinated and microchipped. WCLRR will provide all of her medical records so her new family can share them with their vet for her future needs.

COVID-19 Update: WCLRR is continuing to accept applications for adoptions, scheduling virtual home interviews, and accepting owner surrenders. Please contact if you have any questions.
