***** Carlotta has been with us longer than we would like so she is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and her adoption fee has been reduced to $300. *****

Hello there, wonderful folks! I'm Carlotta, and I'm on the lookout for my new family. Let me share a bit about myself with you!
Since I arrived at the shelter as a stray, I've come a long way in opening up to new people. Initially a bit nervous, I've transformed into a charming and friendly companion. Nowadays, you'll find me confidently approaching, ready to soak up all the love, pets, treats, and toys you have to offer. I'm a big fan of leaning in for pets - it's one of my favorite things!

If you're considering bringing me into your home, here are a few things to keep in mind. I might need some guidance and patience during dog introductions, and I could use support in addressing general fear.

In summary, my journey here has been one of transformation, from nervousness to friendliness with people. I'm ready to bring joy and love into a new home, but I might need a bit more time to warm up to unfamiliar canine companions. I would thrive as the only dog in your loving home and am best suited for a family with Teens Plus, providing the calm and patient environment I need.

So, what do you say? Will you be my new BFF? I'm looking forward to a home filled with treats, toys, and lots of attention. Let's embark on this journey together - will you be the one to welcome me into your heart?

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy adult dog but its always a good idea to make me an appointment so I can meet my new vet soon.
