Crackle, who’s been at the shelter since Oct. 10, 2022, is a sensitive but affectionate girl who loves to lean in for pets. She love balls and playing tag games, but has to be careful right now because she’s heartworm positive. Crackle needs someone who can take on her medical care and help her get treatment. In the meantime, Crackle gets lots of love and stimulating games to keep her entertained and loves a good belly rub or a scratch on the head. Crackle would do best in an only dog home as she can be a bit bossy. She is good with kids of any age (but can be grabby with treats) and can have careful, slow introductions with other dogs who will give her space. Crackle is quite anxious and sensitive, but she knows that she can thrive outside of the shelter with someone who will have patience to teach her new things. Celebrate the new year with Crackle! Visit her today at APS of Durham.
