My two favorite things about Salem: She loves to snuggle in my chair with me and she is always happy to see me and greets me with a smile. When we have visitors, she stands at their feet and barks, but as the person stays longer, she slowly calms down and is then eager to meet them.

What should the next family should know about Salem: When my wife and I rescued her we promised her a better life and until recently we have kept that promise. the last owner had left her tied up to some garbage bags on the side of the road. when she first met us she growled at me because she was very scared. by the third day we seen her, she was happy to see us. it is easier for us to rehome her than to rehome the other two dogs. she is a love bug who deserves a great family who can give her the attention she deserves. I pray that she adapts to her new home as quickly as she did to ours.
