Gracie is a lovable, mischievous, curious, and intelligent puppy. She is a rescue mutt who will inform you that she needs attention by grabbing your shoe and chewing on it. She enjoys long walks and solving puzzles. Since her birth in late 2018, she has developed a reputation as an escape artist, first scaling her pet gate at three months and graduating to opening the backyard fence door at five months. Her adoptive hominid family of four are uncertain as to her eventual size, but with Chow and other large breeds, she could soon stand perilously at or above table height. Given her considerable wits and smarts, this could translate into many large meals for one: Gracie.
