From the Foster:

- Would do best with fenced yard

Are you looking for a sophisticated, mature, know-how-she-wants-it lady?

Are you wanting a family friend who is confident, welcoming, and likes to sing the song of her people?

Lemme tell you, I have the hound for you! Greta is an adult hound mix who is looking to become a family's one and only. The apple of their eyes, their best friend of all time.

Greta has been in rescue for a long time, waiting for someone who is ready for a snuggler that can handle only one cuddle monster. Although she is not reactive to other animals, she tends to guard her food and belongings from other pets, causing her to be rude towards other critters.

When she is the only animal, Greta is an amazing companion. She loves people, cuddling, and doesn't require much exercise! She enjoys playing with balls and ropes in the backyard, then comes in to snore on your couch or bed. Or both, depending on your preferences!

Greta is a typical hound in most of her qualities -- she does bark and bay when playing and will tug on a leash to follow where her nose leads her. Because of this, a fence yard is optimal for this gal. She is also very intelligent, so training is a breeze for her! Smart, obstinate, so much hound.

Greta is a loving, endearing lady who wants to be your family's protector, lover, and overall baby. She is an amazing dog who is ready for the posh life.

Smart, cute, and squishy. What else could you want?

What do ya say, is there an extra spot on your couch that could use a hound??
