ALEXANDRIA, VA -Fritter is a 4-year-old female dog who is at the perfect stage in life! While her beautiful speckled, salt-and-peppery coat may make you think she’s older, she’s really at a lovely age. She’s well past the puppy stage, but she’s still got energy and zest for life’s adventures. Fritter loves to play with toys in the yard and go on walks, runs or hikes. While she could use a bit of work on her leash manners, she’s made great progress with our staff and volunteers. Her favorite toys are the plush, squeaky kind and she loves to sling them around. A nice game of tug is also on her list of faves. Fritter has a lot of personality and would make a wonderful family dog.
