Sierra in Minneapolis, MN

Update 5-2-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Are you looking for a playful pup that splits her time between fetch and your lap? Sierra is the one for you. This sweet, active girl loves playing fetch in the yard and then coming inside for a cuddle. If she can’t find a lap to warm, Sierra loves relaxing on the sofa or napping in her crate.

Sierra is house broken and hasn’t had a single accident since she’s been with her foster mom. She sleeps through the night and loves to be on the big bed with her people, but is also content to snooze in her crate. She’s a big fan of toys (especially the squeaky ones) and she likes to tear them up and find the squeaker inside.

Sierra is dog friendly and good with kids over 5. She would also be happy to be an only dog, as long as someone will spend some time playing with her each day. She is very food motivated and enjoys her kibble quite a bit, so her foster mom has been using a slow bowl to keep her from eating too fast.

Sierra is 2.5 years old (born 1/15/21), weighs 19 pounds and has a clean bill of health. She is spayed and microchipped and up to date on all of her shots.

Sierra’s foster mom thinks Sierra would love to have an active family to go on adventures with. A fenced yard is a bonus, as Sierra loves to sniff and explore.
