Meet Cherish.  This little spit-fire was rescued from a shelter in the Bahamas after Hurricane Sandy.  Her foster mom says in less than 48-hours she has fallen in love with this little girl.  She likes to play, but also loves to snuggle.  Though a little on the dominant side, she gets along fine with her foster's other dogs. She ignores the cat, but is curious if she passes by in close proximity. She is completely house-trained to the outside and after watching the other dogs use the dog door, figured out how to use it herself.  Otherwise she scratches on the door to go out. She sleeps in a crate, but would love to share a bed with her new guardian. 

Upon arrival from the Bahamas, Cherish was infested with ticks and had severe hair loss. She still has some itching and scaling and therefore should be placed on a quality diet to assist the healing.  She has fully recovered from the ticks.  Now that Cherish has become a Coloradoan, she is looking for her Forever Home.  Will you open up your heart and your home to this little sweetheart and make her a member of your family?
