Likes: Melonie is pretty low energy and is fine with a daily walk and some play time inside or outside. She loves learning new tricks for treats. She is a whiz with puzzle toys and enjoys destroying the occasional stuffed toy.

What makes this dog special: Mel is a wallflower who takes some time to show you her smart, sweet personality. She loves learning new tricks and especially likes earning treats for good behavior. Once she is comfortable, she likes playing with toys and is always up for some couch and tv time with you.
