As we head into the dog days of summer, the thermometer-breaking heat sure makes it feel like an awful long way from Christmas. And yet, imagine how far off it feels for this pretty girl named Dasher, who was born on Christmas Day.... 2008!!! Yes this sweetheart has spent her ENTIRE life at the shelter, a total of six Christmases. Sadly, many of her brothers and sisters also remain at the shelter, including her current penmate, Patty. These girls have spent their whole lives together, and are very reliant on one another. Approach them in their pen, and they'll often stand sheepishly to the side. However, get them out into the sunshine and fresh air, and they turn into different dogs! Dasher is more self-assured, strolling about the play yard with purpose - this is one independent girl! However, she really warms up to people in this larger scale environment, and those cute shepherd-mix ears make you just want to snuggle with her all afternoon. Dasher is a healthy, medium-sized pup that needs a new lease on life -- let's find her a forever home so she doesn't have to celebrate yet another Christmas birthday at ARF.
