A volunteer writes:
Someone had a sense of humor when they named Orca, as she’s closer in size to a minnow! She’s a tiny little girl with a smiling face, a couple of snaggle teeth, and an adorable way about her that makes everyone stop and ask, “Can I pet her?”. Likely housetrained, she ‘went’ as soon as we were out the door, and off we head to the park, Orca leading the way. Her leash manners are pretty good, and while she pulls slightly from time to time she’s so small she’s easily managed. Posing for pictures like a pro in the park, she’s anxious to meet all the other dogs walking by and pulls and whines in her greeting to them. She sits when asked to and takes treats gently. In group she’s tolerant, sometimes a bit nervous, but enjoys the opportunity to play. She puts her paws in my lap for some cuddles, and loves to give and get kisses. Making friends with a young girl as we walked back to the shelter, stopping for some petting and conversation, it’s clear why Orca earned her good behavior assessment. Available to move into just about any living situation in both temperament and size, Orca (aka Minnow as I laughingly called her), is accepting applications for her new family. Get yours in quickly!
