Hi! I’m Envie. I caused quite a stir at the beginning of December as I avoided people and ran loose in the cold up and down Packer Drive in Wausau right near the animal shelter.

I was lucky staff members at the shelter were able to catch me before I was hit by a car or froze to death. I was at an all-time low and my family was nowhere in sight. I really didn’t think I’d be able to trust again but shelter staff members have renewed my spirit and reminded me of the power of love.

I feel like a whole new dog and I’ve got a new lease on life and I’m ready to be a part of your family. As you can imagine, I tend to be shy at first but once I let my guard down you’ll discover I’m a playful, pretty girl with the puppy attitude.

I’m friendly with other pets and like to be in charge. I’m smart, adorable and worth it and I’m never going to forget that again.

Editor’s note: Pet of the week is a weekly feature profiling pets at the Humane Society of Marathon County in need of a home. To find out more about this week’s pet and the adoption process, visit the HSMC website here.
