Pearl was surrendered to the shelter by her family, who found themselves in a position where they could no longer care for her. Owner surrenders are alway heart-wrenching and we put tons of extra effort into those dogs to make sure they know that they are safe and sound and loved. Pearl got the point and has been a whole lot of fun here with us. She is agreeable and goofy and playful. She adored wearing her Halloween costume for the big spooky photo shoot and showed off her modeling skills to anyone who asked. It goes without saying that Pearl is beyond gorgeous, but she is also smiley, sweet, smart and silly. Pearl loves hanging out with her roomies, but seems to think the smaller dogs are dumb and annoying, so we'd like her to be either an only dog or with a dog that's her size or larger. We wouldn't want our princess to think she was being forced to live with lesser beings, naturally.
