Happy is a 14 weeks old Shepherd mix puppy that was rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern Georgia. She has soft fur and velvety smooth ears. Her name suits her perfectly because she really is a happy girl. Happy is a very gentle and calm puppy. Like most puppies, she enjoys playing too.

Happy was a bit shy when she arrived in NJ but with the help of her foster family, she is adjusting to family life and has become more comfortable in her new surroundings. Happy is really a sweet and affectionate dog. She loves to cuddle and getting belly rubs. Happy is doing very well with her housebreaking and crate training. She is great with kids and enjoys playing with other dogs. Happy will make a great addition to any family. Happy is spayed, up to date with her vaccinations, and micro-chipped.
