The first thing you may notice when you see me is my one ear up and one down, the second are the fly bite marks. Sadly, I was left abandoned in my backyard after my human passed away. No one in the family wanted me, so while the house was left in probate, I was left outside without any shelter and all alone. Someone would come by occasionally and dump large piles of dog food on the cement for me to eat which I ended up sharing with the rats, possums and other backyard critters. Fortunately, the neighbors found out and got together to supply food, shelter, vet exams, lab works, shots and taking turns giving me walks. One of the neighbors took me in temporarily to his backyard and screened-in porch until I can find a forever home. I’m a little shy at first to some strangers but once I get to know you, I’ll thrive on your companionship and follow you around like a puppy. I love my neighborhood walks, meeting new people and dogs, and catching up with everyone I already know. The people who know me also say that I am very intelligent and love to please, and that I would be an excellent partner for a single person or a family with an easy lifestyle. I am a great traveler and would welcome any adventure anywhere, anytime. I rarely bark, so I’m just an amazing girl who isn’t any trouble and is ready for my new life. I love visitors, so come on over (I’m fostered in the Los Angeles area), do a meet & greet, fall in love and take me home!
