Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Carly, and 18-month-old terrier mix who wishes her forever home could be the dog park.

Since her arrival in May at the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, Carly has really come out of her shell. Although she was initially quite shy, she’s decided the dog park is where it’s at – so she’ll welcome any opportunity to go there and play with the other dogs.

“Carly is such a terrier. She’s so active and bright. She’s fearless on the play equipment – there’s nothing she won’t climb or jump over if you ask her. She’d be a great agility dog,” says Erica Sanborn, adoption counselor at the Humane Society Silicon Valley.

With all that energy, this 20 lb. girl – who loves to give people kisses! – would make a great sidekick for someone who loves to hike or run. Previously living in a home with nine dogs, Carly stands out from the pack when it comes to fetch because she’s really good at it. She’ll welcome a game of fetch if it means she can work for treats.

If you think this sweet girl is for you, contact the HSSV at 408-262-2133. To read more about her, click here.
