PERIDOT (Courtesy Posting)

Peridot is about 5 years old, but she easily keeps up with the younger dogs in her foster home. Her love of running will require a large fenced yard to play in or a dedicated jogger for her daily workout.

She was found as a stray and we can't understand why her owners didn't look for her...she is a sweet, gentle dog that would fit nicely into any home. Peridot is housebroken, crate trained, she knows some basic obedience commands, and is already enrolled in a Basic Obedience class. She will "sit pretty" on command for the reward of a treat but is happy to please even when your hands are empty, rides well in the car, and looks forward to meal times.

This little girl loves to be petted and pays you back with sweet butterfly kisses. Could your lap become her favorite place to rest?
