Orange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!

Gnocchi has been spending some time in foster. Here’s what the humans have to say about her: 

“Gnocchi is the sweetest girl and is looking forward to her forever home. While she has some anxiety at the shelter, don’t let that fool you. Once she gets home she is a ball of joy. She’s full of energy and can be jumpy when someone comes home or with new people, but did great with her leash on to settle her down. She sits and lies down and loves her toys. She doesn’t like to be alone and will be your right hand girl no matter where you go. She loves cuddles and has the biggest heart, and wouldn’t hurt a fly. She’s not food aggressive and, even if she’s anxious, she’s still just the sweetest girl. She loves riding and going for walks. Great for a home with someone that likes to hike and spend time outdoors with their furry best friend. You won’t go wrong choosing Gnocchi for your home.”

“She’s a doll! She’s settling into the rhythm of our house and has relaxed a lot since she first got here. She’s very friendly and considerate of my cats, but does sometimes get a bit too excited to roughhouse with my tiny senior dog so that has to be closely monitored. Not a big issue at all though. We’re also working on her confidence out on walks- I’ve noticed she’s particularly skittish in loud and busy situations (like fire trucks driving by). She seems to love to please and is very responsive to training.”
