Hi, I’m Gracie and I am a snuggle-bug who loves to play. My foster mom thinks I’m adorable, smart, curious, loving, and wanting to please. (Moms are so sweet when they sing our praises, aren’t they?) As a 1 year old mixed terrier breed, I weigh in at 19 lbs. I can run and play in the yard by myself but would be delighted to have a doggie friend to play with.  After a good romp, I’d probably need a snooze, preferable curled up next to you with my head in your lap. Then I could sit by a window and be totally entertained watching the world go by. Heck, I sometimes like watching TV.

I’m very shy of new people and struggle with anxiety, likely due to lack of socialization during the time of Covid and experiences in my early life. At this point, I might take an hour and plenty of treats to warm up to new human friends. But once I do, I’m putty in their hands!! My foster mom asked a dog expert about my anxiety/fear. The expert said medication could help me adjust to new situations and people. At this point I am wary of men, new sounds, and new situations. But with patience, kindness, and understanding this could all change. I want so very much to write a new chapter in my life because I’m a sweet, fun-loving, cutie-pie, who wants nothing more than to be someone’s best friend and companion. 

Right now, my ideal home would have a yard in a quite neighborhood or in the country. A calm older dog who is well socialized could show me the ropes of how to be a confident dog and friend to all. I’d shine in a home with a predictable structure and no small children. It would great if my soft-spoken, mellow human companion is semi-retired, retired, or works at home. Three things to note: I am housebroken, not a barker, and at this point, I don’t like riding in cars.

So if you’re looking for a life-long companion with a sweet, fun loving character who will be devoted to you – look no further – that’s me! I’d come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $200. If interested in adopting me, please email Victoria at victoriahand@mac.com
