Tired of winter? Have no fear, Liesel is here to bring some sunshine and love into your life! This sweet, charming girl is ready to play outside anytime, especially if there’s snow — but she’s also very happy to cuddle and play with her toys inside. Timid at first, Liesel quickly warms up and becomes affectionate in a quiet, unassuming way. We would say her favorite toy is her ball, because she loves to chase and carry it outside (she hasn’t mastered the art of “retrieving” yet), but really she loves anything that she can pick up and carry. She has amassed a small collection of toys in her foster home, and stores them on the couch for easy access. Her foster family has found several toys hidden behind and underneath pillows, but shhh, don’t tell Liesel that we’re onto her secret! Liesel gets along very well with the other dogs in her foster home and would be happiest in a home with another laidback dog who can show her the ropes. She is easily startled by loud noises and unpredictable movements, so will do best with older children. Liesel does require a fenced yard. She has not been tested with cats, but we suspect she would be OK with a dog-savvy cat. She is crate-trained and rides nicely in the car.
