I ended up in a shelter in California and was lucky enough to be sprung from a high kill shelter by a rescue here in beautiful Portland! I've been living it up with my super cool foster parents in Portland. I love their cozy place but I love their super comfy sofa even more. I am looking for a home with some new parents that will give me lots of love and yes, another very comfy sofa. A little about me...I'm a curvy girl — I have honey-colored eyes and as you can see a beautiful coat. I'm so stunning in fact, that I get stopped on the street all the time by envious fans. I walk extremely well on a leash, adhere to basic commands and love to strut my stuff.
