Hi!  My name is PAIGE, and I'm a 3-year-old field setter. I've been told that I'm not really a bird dog...I'm a BUG dog! I will hunt anything that crawls or flitters by. I can spend hours on the patio, pointing ants and spiders, and I make myself breathless running after butterflies and jumping to catch the moths. When I come inside, I morph into "cuddle dog." I know all the cuddle moves. I'm an expert at the snuggle, the slither, and the snooze. I've also perfected the leg lean and the lap curl. At 38 pounds, I'm the perfect size for cuddling and my fur is so soft, you can't resist me!

I'm very playful and can entertain myself with squeaky toys, a tennis ball, or a stuffie. I have the run of the backyard and have been trained on an invisible fence, but I also enjoy walks around the neighborhood. I don't pull too much, just enough to catch all the scents in the grass before I have to move on. Right now, I live with four other dogs and a cat. I get along okay with the other dogs, but they can make me nervous sometimes. We hang out together, but I'm hesitant when they try to play with me. Now, that cat is another story. I usually leave him alone, but if I'm looking for someone to play with, he's my first choice. Maybe it's because he's smaller than me. I don't hurt him; I just bounce around and give him a play bow or two. My real love is people! I just can't get enough of them! I would really love to find a family where I could be their one and only...only dog, that is.

I'm house-trained, and I'm good enough to be out and about when my family is gone. I'm not telling what I'm up to, but my foster mom thinks I look out the window and snooze on her bed. At night time, I usually sleep by myself, either on a dog bed by Mom's side or in the family room with one of the other dogs. I'm a good listener and I come running when Mom calls my name. I can also sit when ask, although sometimes I'm so excited, my little bottom wiggles off the floor!

How about you? What's your story? If you're looking for a playful princess to call your own, I'm right here!
