Hi… my name is Pinta.

Adopted February 27, 2015

It’s been an exciting few months for me I can tell you! When I first arrived at TALGV I was frightened, hungry, and had several wounds that needed tending, so I’ve spent my time recovering from all that distress. Well, now I’m happy to say I’ve been living with a foster family for a while, and they say that although I’m still a bit shy, I’m very friendly, love affection (and attention!), and love playing with their two dogs. They think that I’ve probably lived in a home once, as I’m totally housebroken and take a shot at the sofa once in a while (didn’t work, but I got a cushy dog bed instead!). I’m a svelte young heeler/shepherd mix who yearns for a settled home where I can feel secure. Pinta passed her American Kennel Club (AKC)  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification test with flying colors on February 16, 2015. Many thanks to her foster parent for assisting with this important training.

Arrived September 3, 2014.
