Meet Matilda! Matilda is looking for a loving home with a family and other pets. She needs a fenced yard where she can run to her heart's content. Matilda is incredibly sweet, and you'll quickly see how perfect she is. She’s very affectionate, loves to cuddle, and gives lots of kisses. She’s also quite wiggly and can entertain herself.

Matilda loves her walks, though she can be a bit stubborn, insisting on going where she wants. If she doesn't want to come inside, she'll definitely let you know! She’s a big fan of chewing, so having plenty of chew toys is a must. When she sees another animal or person outside, she’ll lie down on her tummy, ready to say hello.

Matilda loves life and enjoys every moment of the day. We take her for an hour-long walk, which she thoroughly enjoys, stopping to sniff and explore. Afterward, it's often a challenge to get her back inside. She’s a joyful companion who’s eager to meet new friends and share her love.

Matilda is from Texas.
