We can’t say “No” to a lovely lady – you look into Esperanza’s eyes and try to tell her that she can’t come home with you! Espy, as she’s known for short, is a 2-year-old female Cairn Terrier mix from Salem, OR. She’s already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Esperanza’s Story:

Espy is a sweet playful dog of about 2, she weighs around 12 pounds. She loves walks, rides well in the car, is crate trained and housebroken. She gets along well with other dogs, loves to play; she is fine with dog savvy cats and loves all people. Espy would do best in a lively home with children over 7 years old. Espy learns quickly is adapts to new experiences, and she would love a dog class to bond her to her person. She is the perfect lap dog or reading companion for someone with another dog and/or time to play. Espy loves squeaky toys and wrestling with other canines.
