Kamila's family state that they plan to travel out of the country for extended periods of time an so they surrendered her to the VERY FULL SHELTER!!! She's a bit nervous but sweet and ALLOWED ALL HANDLING! She'll need some time with other animals as she hasn't been around them but initial exposure seems promising with slow intro and calm dogs. She was not cat tested but again -- with a dog friendly cat and slow intro - she'd likely be okay.
PER SHELTER ASSESSMENT:

Stranger- Kamila approached the stranger socially, sniffed, and wandered around the room.
