Twinkle has been at the shelter since June and can’t wait to find a family to call her own. Her behavior has changed a bit from being cooped up at the shelter for so long, but she’s still a sweet, smart pup at her core. Twinkle has lots of energy and it’s hard for her to get all her wiggles out because she’s restricted to short walks due to being heart worm positive. Twinkle needs a family who can attend to her medical needs so that she can be her best self and build on her training – she already knows “sit” and is easily redirected when distracted. Twinkle is a smart girl who loves to learn and needs plenty of opportunities to do so. She loves to chase balls and learn new games, and will do anything for a treat! Twinkle can be mouthy with treats, and would do best with a family with kids older than 10 and may be too rough while playing for some other dogs.
