Mona Lisa, your smile is as delightful as it is mysterious!

Do you like to jog? Or take walks? Or hike? Or maybe you like to climb mountains or just spin wildly in circles under a moonlit evening! If that is you, Mona kindly asks to join you in all those endeavors. She is very food motivated and would excel at positive obedience training.

Mona LOVES other dogs and would do best in a home with at least one other active pooch. She would do best in a home with dogs her size or slightly larger, as she does have the tendency to confuse small dogs’ tails for toys. (Rude).

Mona would do best in a home that can offer her enough exercise and mental stimulation to thrive.

Someday Mona hopes to have her portrait hanging in the Louvre but, until then, can she be the one you smile at?

Cat testing: Mona was tested with a confident 16-lb feline named Shawn. She was curious but respectful. She would do well in a home with confident cats or someone who can do slower introductions with less confident cats (we believe she might consider chasing cats who run away).

Kid testing: Mona was tested with a gentle 4-yr-old. She really liked her but would need a home with sturdy children/older children as she is learning not to jump up. She could easily knock a smaller child over.
