Brief Bio: Meet Lita! This adorable girl was found as a stray wandering the streets of San Leandro before she was picked up by animal control. Lita was rescued from the shelter when her time was up after our foster saw her and how amazing she is. Lita is a very friendly, she loves everyone she meets. Lita is very playful and could play tug-o-war all night long. She loves her squeaky stuffy toys and chasing the ball but hasn’t figured it out that we all have more fun if she brings it back.

Lita sleeps nicely on her bed while we are at the table and settles in nicely on her blanket when it’s bed time and sleeps all night. She’s great in the car and she loves to go for a ride. She also know hand signals for come, sit and down.  Lita doesn’t bark when left along outside for a few hours, she would make a wonderful addition to a family who already has a dog as she loves to play. Lita is very active dog, she will needs a family who is going to take out for long walks or has a large area to let her run off-leash. She’s a great dog for someone who wants partner without all the hard work and destructive phases of a puppy. Lita’s easy going and a fun dog to have in the house, she is waiting patiently for a loving home to call her own!
