From the American Heritage® Dictionary

Alright, alright. Maybe we added that last line. But we may very well submit a suggested edit.  And we know we use that term a lot, I mean we’re talking Cavaliers, right? But it seems especially fitting for beautiful Tinsley.

This Tri-color youngster simply makes us swoon, and we think she will you too. She’s a lover, highly accomplished in the art of cuddling. Tinsley is known to find all the comfiest spots and make them hers. She’s intently watching TV when either real or cartoon animals show up and may even talk with them.

She adores a nice walk and has being ladylike down pretty well. Tinsley also has fit in well with the foster pups and was just another one of the pack with five Cavaliers on Christmas Day! She’s been granted access to the big bed and likes to be close and maybe on a pillow. 

Tinsley does come with one area of concern – she suffered a scary incident with a big dog in her former life and she is quite anxious when she meets a dog of a certain size.  We’re sure she’ll heal from that little bit of trauma, but it requires sensitivity right now.

Otherwise, Tinsley is one intensely lovable pupster. She’s fun, but not super active. Her understanding of fetch is more like a game of keep-away right now, but she pulls it off adorably. She’s good at doing her business and is a good, easy-going eater.

So, if you might be looking for a sweetheart, Tinsley just might be your girl!
