11/17/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Her serious face hides the snuggle delights awaiting the lucky person spending time with Miss Mallory. Petite, easy and calm Mallory loves to snuggle, laying her head in my lap for some petting, or joining me on the bench for some kisses. Gently playful, she chases a ball and does a semi retrieve, and I can take it right out from under her as she doesn’t guard it. Sitting before she’s asked as soon as she sees a treat in my hand, she takes it gently and sits, waiting for another. Too cute! Sweet, low key and gentle, it’s almost hard to believe she’s still a puppy–her manners are that good! Mallory seems a bit uncomfortable around other dogs, but does eventually solicit play. As always, if you have a current dog, a meet and greet is recommended before bringing this beauty home. Found abandoned in a building and roaming the hallways, she’s a snugglicious little girl, waiting to shower her person with love and kisses. Will the lucky one be you?
