Tessa [ADOPTED JUNE 6] was picked up as a stray in a suburban shelter and is reported to be 5 - 6 years of age. She wasn't claimed and came to rescue. Since she has been here, she has gotten along with all the other dogs, gets along very well with cats and is really a very nice dog. She gets excited when its meal time but she has never showed any aggression. She is crate trained, housetrained and likes nothing better than sitting in our lap. She would make a wonderful addition to any family.

Update from Tessa's Foster Mom: Tessa recently went on her first field trip in her foster home. We went on a 4 hour trip and she traveled well in the car and was very well behaved. She loves to play ball and will bring it back to you. She can be a little verbal with this but lets you take it without any problems. She also loves to mother all the dogs and cats in her foster home and licks them into submission. She is a wonderful girl!!
