Ms. Mona - she’s one of those “underfoot” dogs - she loves to be touching you whenever she can. You pet her and stop, she’ll let you know but taking your hand gently in her mouth to make it move again!!
A gorgeous retriever mix, her face just says it all.
Mona was a stray who walked onto a property in Mississippi months ago at 22 lbs when she should have been 50 (and yes, not unlike the author of this bio, she’s a little overweight). She landed at the property with her 8 babies all of whom found home but not mama. We are thrilled we get to be part of her journey.
She’s fostering with numerous other dogs and is great with them all - big, small and yappy chihuahuas.
She’s not been tested with cats but we can do that if needed. Children also but she has such a wonderful personality we can’t imagine she’d have a problem - she does however use her mouth in a super gentle way to tell you what she wants, like petting and pay attention.
Make this beauty your couch dog, you’ll love her.

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
