    Karmen is around 2 years old and about 50 lbs

    It's hard to know where to start when talking about Karmen. She was scooped up as a stray, giving kisses to her rescuers and quickly stealing their hearts. She immediately showed hesitancy towards some men, she has obviously had some bad S**T go down. She will cower and run if you drop a pan or gesture too big, and she has weird scars that will break your heart. We've worked hard to show her that all men don't suck, and she's starting to believe us. Her foster dad is currently her favorite person (although I still hold a close second!). 

    Karmen loves to wrestle and scrap with other dogs and is a perfect mama role model to her baby foster sister. She's gentle but stern, setting boundaries with grace and understanding. She'll happily engage a body slam from her baby sister, laying on her back like a wounded wildebeest waiting for the kill. A true class act. She's lived with multiple cats, chased some and snuggled with others, caused harm to none. 

    Karmen will protect you and your space. She'll bark at anyone who approaches, but easily be convinced that they are friend not foe with a few hot dogs. Unless they are foe masquerading as friend. Then, she will let you know that you have been run afoul and you will eventually learn that she is right, and smarter than you. 

    We want a home for Karmen with another playful dog, but one with regular doggy friend play dates will suffice. A fenced in yard is preferable, but a regular exercise plan could probably work. Unconditional love and snuggling is non negotiable, none of this "dog not allowed on the furniture" BS for her. She is a surviver and she holds no grudges. She gives more love than is deserved by most people, and we want her to spend the rest of her life getting nothing but love in return. 

    If you think you are worthy of the actual smartest and most resilient dog on the planet, fill out our foster/adoption application here: and someone will be in touch with you shortly!
