This velvety smooth tan hippo is none other than Acorn! Acorn has unfortunately been a familiar face at the LASPCA since 2022 when she was originally surrendered along with another dog due to no fault of their own. Since then, Acorn has been dealt an unfair paw and experienced a revolving door of families and homes only to find herself back at her stomping grounds. She's the best girl and has proven to be resilient, no matter how many times her circumstances change. We are baffled as to why such a stellar dog and amazing companion has experienced so many ups and downs in her young life.

Acorn is perfectly poised and quiet in her kennel despite the fray and loudness of being in a noisy environment. She LOVES going for walks and her yard zoomies are the cutest to witness! She has perfect manners and will calmly climb up for hugs. She is fantastic with other dogs and will engage in play with other canines, or respect the boundaries of more introverted or dominant dogs. She is cool, calm, and collected no matter the human or dog she encounters, and is all around just an easy, breezy gal.

Acorn recently attended an adoption event, as well as the Pawdi Gras parade where she was able to showcase all of the attributes and qualities we adore and she did not disappoint! She was predictably perfect with children and other dogs, and loved relishing in the attention from bystanders that she so deserves!

Acorn continues to remain hopeful in that her string of misfortunes will change and that someone will embrace her and commit to her for a lifetime. She is a treasure of a dog and we know that her wait to forever will be worth it for her and her lucky human!
