Description: Who says you have to be a teenager to be drop dead gorgeous? Connie is a middle aged girl, but she still turns heads with her stunning, blue merle coloring and regal profile. She is a petite little thing and weighs only 45 pounds.

Connie is every bit as loving as she is lovely. She definitely prefers women to men and just loves to cuddle with her foster mom. She eats up any and all attention and is happiest when she is lying quietly near her foster mom. She is extremely gentle and is usually a quiet little girl (though she doesn’t like to be kenneled and will whine or bark if left in her crate).

Connie gets along well with other animals – both dogs and cats, and is fine with the four year old child at her foster home. She is afraid of loud sounds, however, so noisy energetic children make her nervous. She would be happiest in a forever home that did not include young children, though older, respectful kids would be fine.

Connie was not housetrained when she came to her foster home, and her foster family is working with her on this skill. The brutally cold weather has not helped the process. Also, while Connie can handle carpeted stairs indoors, she is very hesitant to deal with the wet, snowy steps leading to her yard. The combination of snow and cold has made housetraining a bit of an uphill battle for Connie, but she is a loving, eager-to-please girl and is making progress.

Connie is looking for a quiet, laid back, forever home where they will continue with her training and provide her with lots of love and stability. Ideally, she would do best in a home without young children. A retired couple or woman would be perfect, and Connie would be fine with another, easy going dog or a cat. She definitely needs a fenced yard, since loud noises or strange sounds would cause her to run.

This beautiful girl will need some ongoing training and patience, but she is such a gentle, loving soul that she is well worth the effort.
