Meet our girl Tess, whose owner’s last wish was that she be placed with GRRMF knowing we would find a loving forever family for their sweet girl. Tess is a quiet gal who patiently waits for belly rubs and enjoys lounging around the home or watching you work in the backyard. She was raised with good house manners, knows her commands and is working on being a better hostess when friends visit. You don’t need to ask twice for Tess to join you for a car ride as she will eagerly hop right in to cruise the neighborhood, run an errand, or head to the dog park – one of her favorite places to run.
Missing a portion of her lower back jaw has not stopped this gal from enjoying food and she arrived in foster care a bit overweight. Tess has already lost more than 8 pounds after receiving a healthier diet and will remain on her green bean and kibble food to help her regain her girly waistline. Her activity level has increased with the recent weight loss and Tess enjoys frequent walks and trips to the dog park. She was unimpressed when her foster family bought a kiddie pool for water play but surprised everyone when she ran into the surf at the beach and enjoyed swimming.
Tess has been working with a GRRMF trainer to build her confidence around other dogs and has made great progress, calmly passing canines on her daily walks. Her personality is blossoming and her tails wags all the time. Tess enjoys spending time with her humans and being the center of attention. She would prefer to be the only canine in the home and definitely does not want to share her space with a feline.
Our sweet gal has a beautiful smile and a pure heart. She will remain in foster care until she reaches a healthier weight but is eager to have a family to call her own once again.
