Are you looking for a new best friend that will always have lots to say? Vera is looking for her new home and would love a family that can help her come out of her shell and show her how much fun the world can be!

~ Vera is looking for a loving patient adult only family that can help her learn how to be a happy and confident dog.
~ This sweetie needs a quieter home that is a house rather than apartment style home as she is too nervous to get into an apartment, she also does not want to upset her new neighbours with her big singing voice.
~ Vera is shy and sensitive to new people, environments and situations so her new family should be prepared to help her slowly become more comfortable throughout different aspects of her life.
~ Vera will need to be signed up for 3 in-person training sessions to help work on her socializing, basic training and manners and build some confidence and trust with her new family.
~ She likely will need to meet her new family more than once before she is comfortable enough to go home with them.
~ Vera is shy but she does love to be active! She will need lots of opportunities for exercise and enrichment daily to keep her busy and happy.
