Meet Persephone

5-year-old Persephone has been in the shelter's care since late October after arriving as a stray and is currently available for adoption, foster, and for rescue.

Check out her adorable Instagram page @onestlycutePersephone loves her toys and her people. She will wake you up in the morning with kisses and cuddles and greet you with a toy in her mouth and a wiggly bum. She is a smart girl and knows several commands including sit, stay, come, down, paw/other paw, drop it, find it, and if you say boop she will lick your nose. Persephone loves to cuddle, get belly rubs, is a good office dog, and enjoys both the bike path and Antrim park. She is housebroken and crate trained and can also free-roam when left alone. She does great when you go to work as she is respectful in the home, loves her toys, and will rarely go for anything that is not a dog toy. She is very good at playing with her toys independently and is easily self-entertained!

Persephone is a happy, affectionate big lap dog who loves to give kisses and whose whole body wiggles when she's excited! She loves to do zoomies in the backyard and has also done well with daily walks as exercise. She loves to sniff on walks and is easily redirected when necessary. She is playful, smart, and curious, and will curl up for a nap on the couch or her dog bed after playtime ends.

Persephone can be slow with trusting new people. Historically Persephone has not done well in the shelter environment and has shown reactivity towards strangers in and out of the shelter. She would do best in a home with experienced dog owners and no children or small animals, including cats. She responds well to clicker training and has been attending the shelter's reactivity classes where she has improved each week. She is very treat motivated, and her fosters have yet to find a food she won't eat.

Persephone should meet any resident dogs as she can be dog selective. She previously did well with a similar-sized neutered male. Persephone is available for direct adoption to a home with no kids, no cats, and no small dogs.
