What Melinda would like to know about your dog

The right fit would need to be safe around my children, a good temperament, and get along with other dogs. I try to be as consistent as possible with what your dog is used to at home! Please let me know if your dog isn’t allowed on furniture/beds or anything else you’d like me to know to help them feel comfortable here.
