Meet Tess

Tess is a very friendly, sweet little girl. She is very well-behaved and loves going for walks and will also come when called. Tess enjoys attention and likes to snuggle up and receive plenty of pats. Tess is eager to please and would do well with other small dogs or as an only dog. She had been an outside dog but now enjoys being inside and is almost house trained. Tess would suit a family, with older children, or an older couple, or just about anyone who would be happy to give her some attention. Her coat is super soft and easy maintenance, she is a very pretty girl.

Tess is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Tess was adopted on 19 April 2011 after 6 months in foster care
