Gretchen was a stray at a local shelter. Her perkiness caught the eye of our intake volunteer, who said Gretchen was the cutest dog ever! Well, let’s just say one of the cutest.

Gretchen has a delightful personality, full of unrestrained love and silliness in one turbo dog. Gretchen is also a tiny bit willful, no doubt because she was spoiled rotten by her past human. However, she’s happy to learn. Anything for praise, with kisses in return, of course!

Gretchen likes her small “DAWG dog” friends, so she may be a potential pal for a playful small dog. But Gretchen loves people most of all.


I don’t like my winter coat, even if it is pink!
