I have something to be very happy about: I’m here! Maybe you’ve seen a dog tied outside on a short chain without enough food or water and you wished things could be better for them. Well, I was one of those dogs. Reportedly, I ended up there because another female dog and I didn’t get along. So today, being here is a big step up for me! And the next step will be my forever home with someone who loves me. Now there’s a dream to hold on to! The volunteers say it will happen because I’m intelligent, loving, and energetic—a dog who easily connects with people. I’m a 9-month-old Catahoula mix female, 50 pounds, with a beautiful merle pattern coat. Could you be the one who shows me the happy life forever?
