Sweet little Sunshine came to us recently from Fresno. She is approximately 2 years old and about 10lbs.  She is a quiet girl, who is true to her name and loves being in the sunshine! Her foster says "We have a yard and she loves to explore and find a sunny spot and roll around and then cuddle up and fall asleep. She LOVES cuddling up her human. I think she lives for it. She's has a light appetite. She walks really well on leash now, although nervous around joggers and large crowds of people. When she gets startled, I just stop and let them pass and she responds really well to that." Sunshine adores children and seems to get along with other dogs and cats. She is learning to be crate-trained, doesn't chew on things, and is making great progress on her house-training.  Sunshine  never barks at anyone. She follows me everywhere. She would thrive with a family or a person who can really devote a lot of time to her.  She seems to have some separation anxiety, which her foster is hard to help her with. If you would like to meet Sunshine, please fill out an application on our website,
