Crocket was found as a stray during one of Houston’s rainstorms, crying and seeking shelter. Initially very shy and quiet, she has blossomed into a happy little girl who loves everybody. 

She loves running around, playing with toys and other dogs, and snuggling up with her foster family. Ideally, she’d likely love to be with a forever family who has an energetic dog looking for a playmate. Her favorite moments are when she gets to spend time with people and other dogs. When she's excited, her whole body wiggles and her tail wags like crazy. When she's sleepy, she loves to snuggle up and rest her head in your lap. Crocket isn't completely leash trained yet, but she's very smart and is learning quickly.

Crocket will bark when she wants to play or when she's having fun. She gets very excited when she sees people and other dogs. Crocket is still teething, so she’ll need something appropriate to chew on. 

Although she was underweight and shy when first found, she has come a long way in both her trust in others and her physical condition. She may need some patience initially as she adjusts to another new environment, but she comes around quickly. Her little life is about to change again, and she may revert to being shy until she realizes she’s safe and loved.

Crocket has the most adorable puppy eyes and ears. She’s just so darn cute!! If you are looking for an adorable playful and loving puppy to add to your house, Crocket may be the lady for you!

Crockett is from Texas.
