Meet Orchid! Orchid was rescued from a tough situation where she and her family were not properly cared for. When she was found, she was covered in urine and feces, and underfed. But since then, she's blossomed into a loving and curious dog who adores attention and cuddles.

Orchid loves to run, jump, and sunbathe. She's very affectionate and enjoys being around her foster parents, often following them around like a little shadow. However, she's not a fan of being crated and will make you chase her around the house when it's time to go in. She's currently working on potty training and doing well with a consistent schedule.

Orchid's daily routine starts with breakfast at 6 am, followed by a quick trip outside. She spends the day in her crate while her foster parents are at work, although she doesn't like it and may whine a bit before settling down. Dinner is at 6 pm, and she gets an hour of outdoor playtime with the other dogs before coming inside to play some more. 

Orchid loves playing with other dogs and would benefit from having a canine companion to keep her entertained. She's very loving and would do best in a home where someone is around more often than not. While she barks when someone new enters the house, she quickly warms up and showers them with cuddles and kisses.

If you're looking for a playful and affectionate dog who loves to be around people and other dogs, Orchid might be the perfect addition to your family!

Orchid is from Texas.
