Pet of the Week: Halo

Newport has a lot of great dogs in need of great homes and great owners… And we’ve got the perfect pup for you to rescue who desperately needs a forever home.

From the shelter:

“Halo is an approximately 1 year old female who is currently in foster care — her foster says this about her:  she is so happy to be given a second chance and does amazing around everyone she meets, including kids.  She is around a lot of dogs in her daily life (she lives with a mastiff and 2 chihuahuas) and she is calming down and learning to play well with others — in her prior life, she had a dog brother from whom she was separated when she entered the shelter system — she is now eager to make new friends.  She is a quick and smart learner and is learning basic commands.  She loves the yard at her foster’s house and is so happy lying on blankets or in the grass just… chilling.

Cute and cuddly girl with the perfect head tilt and flip flop ears 🙂

Halo went from shy girl to surfer dog, hitting the beach weekly with her foster (we are jealous) — she loves water and sand between her paws.  She also loves to run along side your skateboard or bike.  Sounds like this girl knows how to have fun! Why don’t you join her?!? Adopt Halo!
