About Edna

Hi there! My name is Edna. I am a petite little girl. I can be very shy at first, especially with men. Once I have some time to get to know you, however, I will be your little shadow! I love to be where ever you are, especially if that happens to be on the couch under a blanket. I love other dogs, especially ones my size and would love a home with a 4-legged companion. Not only do I enjoy playing with other dogs, but when you can't cuddle me, I will snuggle with them.

I have a lot of great qualities that I can't wait to share with someone. I am crate trained. I am not a big barker. I love to play with my toys and for the most part will amuse myself. I love to snuggle and if you are sitting on the couch or the floor, I will need to be right up there with you! I also have quite the silly side at times. I enjoy being in the sun, whether that is in the yard on a bright day or laying near a window.

While I love being outside on a nice day, I am not a fan of the cold or the rain. I am so tiny after all! So when the not so great weather comes, I will need you to be patient with me as I don't enjoy going outside to potty. I know to make my potty outside and do best when kept on a schedule.

You may have notices from my pictures that my eyes are a little cloudy. A really nice vet took a look at them and unfortunately, my cloudiness is a result of a trauma that left my eyes scarred. I wish I could tell what happened to me. This scarring has resulted in impaired vision in both my eyes. This might be why sometimes I am really shy as the world is a very blurry place for me. I get along just fine once I get use to a new place. Trust me...I don't let my vision keep me down!

I would love to meet you some Saturday. Just remember- I might be a little shy the first time but I am totally worth putting in the effort. I promise I will payback all of your patience ten fold with kisses and snuggles!
