Hi!  My name is Sunny, and just like my name, my personality shines bright.  I am the perfect companion.  Snuggle appreciator, smart, and squeaky toy connoisseur are just a few of my greater talents.  Just check my references.  I enjoy taking walks and smelling all the smells, but tend to pull on the leash if not checked on occasion.  Sometimes, I just need a verbal prompt.

I’m looking for a companion who doesn’t mind my occasional zoomies (I am 55 pounds after all), can give me my daily allergy pill (preferably with peanut butter), and is moderately experienced with dogs.  I came from a situation where having a home, food, water, and being loved was NOT a guarantee.  Because of this, I become protective and tend to defend my home.  Anyone who does not live in the home feels like a stranger to me.  I need someone to help me work through these issues.  When I do become comfortable with someone, I am outstanding at giving love and attention.

I do need time to adjust to other dogs in the home, but do not appreciate feline or small critter residents due to my prey drive.  I am a good eater, and am house trained.  On the rare occasion, I may bark, especially if I am wanting to go outside.  But, I am highly motivated by treats, and am easily corrected in this way.  

I just can’t wait to join your home!  I always add a little sunshine wherever I go!
