Meet our dotted princess Pinta! This unique Dalmatian mixed beauty has had a rough start in life having been born in an empty building that was frequently vandalized. Then on one occasion she was purposely run-over by a car and left for dead. Fortunately she didn't die and she and her siblings were rescued and bought indoors. Her rescuer took her to the vet and she was able to recover and walk again but this cruel act had its consequences. Pinta ended up with her tail fused and is now unable to wag it. But it doesn’t matter, because it doesn't stop her and Pinta has other ways to show gratitude and love; like crawling into your lap to give you a kiss. So cute! If you're looking for an endearing, affectionate, sweet girl that absolutely LOVES all dogs, this girl is for you. Pinta needs a kind, patient, understanding family that will help her blossom and to give her a great life. A great life for an amazingly sweet and gentle dog!
