I was once a lost dog, all alone, running down Sahuarita Road. I’m still grateful to the kind person who stopped for me because that was the beginning of my new life. New friends here welcomed me, calling me charming and very playful. Some even mentioned beautiful. Soon, they were also praising me for being very smart, a quality that helped me earn my AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate, awarded for excellence in the behavior department. Oh, I know—people who want a little dog will not look twice at me. But someone will want me. Just like someone stopped for me on that lonely road, someone will want a charming, beautiful, smart Shepherd mix female. And if you’re that special person, I’ll always love you for being the one who took me home.
