Mom and Dad adopted me three years ago, back when I was just a pup. Since then I’ve learned some important things—how to walk on a leash, “ask” to go outside, follow commands—and recently I learned another lesson: Life can change suddenly. My dad died, and now mom is moving and can’t take care of me anymore. So I came here a little lonely and bashful, but kindness has really brightened my days. The volunteers say I’m elegant with lots of charm (sometimes they let me give them kisses), and although I’m tall (about 64 pounds), my former owner said I wasn’t a jumper, and can be good with kids. I’m a sweet and beautiful black Lab/Heeler/Greyhound mix female, who’d love to go home with you and be happy together forever.
