Desdamona is a sweet, friendly girl who enjoys playing! She may need a little time to warm up to you, but give her some gentle affection and treats, and she’s sure to ask for more. She already knows sit and would love to learn other tricks, too! She enjoys chasing after a ball or a soft toy and would love to play in the backyard. Will you be her forever friend?
