Oyster is a bit stressed at the shelter but enjoys the outside, where she can learn polite manners and easy leash walking. One thing about Oyster is that she loves stuffed toys. She likes to carry them around in her mouth to show them off to everyone she meets. She’s been at the shelter since Dec. 5, 2022, and just wants to break out and prance around fields of flowers, then join you for a cuddle after. She’d do best in a house with kids who are older than 10 and prefers gentle dogs. Oyster’s fee has been waived! Set up a visit at APS of Durham to meet her today!
