This is Gracie. Although she had a rough start to life being hoarded with many other dogs, Gracie loves people and once she gets to know you, has no problem cuddling right up to you. Gracie is a gorgeous, merle colored, smooth-coated collie mix, about 45lbs, and between 4 and 5 years old. She does well with other dogs, but we aren't sure about cats. For Gracie, since she can be scared of loud noises and commotion, we recommend that she go home with polite children ages 8 and up. We think that once Gracie adjusts to prison life, she'll do very well with her obedience training. Gracie needs time and patience to adjust to new situations, but once she bonds with someone, she is devoted and faithful. More updates to come as Gracie learns what it's like to be loved and cared for.
Gracie is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center. To learn more about the Pen Pals program, please visit our website at www.fetchacure.com.
