Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Duchess has a really sweet personality and wants attention and affection from humans. She has also shown good dog skills here at the Sanctuary, though she seems to prefer males. Duchess was born in 2016 and came to Best Friends through local animal control. Not much is known about her past other than that she may have growled at men in her previous home. Dogtown caregivers have not seen that behavior here. Since arriving at the Sanctuary, she has been working on socialization with volunteers and other people she doesn't know to increase her comfort level with strangers. Duchess would love to get to know you and be part of a loving household again.
