What first drew you to your pick? "She holds stuffed animals in her mouth and wags her tail like crazy through her kennel window."
Is there something special about the way your pick looks? "She's a stunning beauty - fawn colored with charcoal markings around her eyes and muzzle."
What is your pick’s coolest/silliest/most fun trait? "She sometimes only blinks one eye at a time!"

Pet: Tuffy (126714)
Employee: Amie W.
Amie, one of the certified teachers on our staff who does educational outreach, simply adores the sweet senior doggie named Tuffy. Here's Amie's explanation for the bond she feels with this special gal:
"The first time I saw Tuffy, I was drawn in by her big beautiful eyes and sorrowful expression. This girl wears her heart on her sleeve! From the minute you meet this sweet girl you know she is longing for a forever-family of her own. She takes her time when she meets a new person, but once you gain her trust (and having some peanut butter doesn’t hurt!) she blossoms into a love-bug. Tuffy embodies what I love most about the animals I see come through SDHS, an amazing resilience and capacity to love and trust no matter what circumstances that brought them in our door."
Come to our Central Campus to meet sweet-souled Tuffy today!
