A volunteer writes: You''re always told never to `judge a book by it''s cover` but that''s exactly what I did when I met Cora. Don''t get me wrong, she''s quite beautiful, is a good weight, has a pretty coat with unique markings and the soft, greying face of a slightly more `seasoned` dog. But I didn''t remotely expect the athlete that I would encounter when taking her out by the way that she looks! Eager to relieve herself, (she''s very housetrained) I opened the kennel door and she was off to the races, hurtling herself out of the shelter. Once outside, and once she had gone potty, she took to a slightly more relaxed speed. That is, until she saw a ball! Cora is truly a competitor. She will run after the ball with the attitude and gusto of a much younger dog. If you toss it into the air she will leap and catch it four or five feet off of the ground. She drops the ball at your feet, will sit and patiently wait until you throw it again to start the game all over. And it''s no surprise since Cora''s former owner tells us that her favorite games are tug and fetch. She has lived with a cat and was tolerant of him, but may give chase to small creatures outside. Though Cora seemed to largely ignore passing dogs while outside on our walk, she may do best in a home without other dogs as her former owner said she can be reactive toward them. It''s clear that there is way more to Cora than her exterior. Ask to meet her today!
