I there, my name is Effie and I would love to meet you! I am young and beautiful, they say I am about 1 to 2 years old and around 55 pounds. I have the sweetest face! My friends think I am Labrador Retriever, Terrier, Mix. All I can tell you is that I am happy to meet you! I know living at the shelter is only a temporary situation for me but I cannot wait to find my forever home! I was dropped off at ACCT by a nice person because I was wondering around as a stray. Now I am ready to meet my new family, could it be you?
I am friendly with the people and dogs that I meet. If you have a dog already bring them to ACCT to meet meet me! Heck, bring the whole family! I want to make sure I am the right fit for you.
My buddies at ACCT are teaching me the basics. I walk well on a harness and I love practicing my new tricks and commands! I will have something to show you when you get here. Although I am learning a lot, one of my favorite pasttimes is sunggling. Do you have a favorite TV show? I would love to watch it with you!
Effie is a part of the Pen Pal program! Sh has not one but two Pen Pals who are volunteers committed to his well being while he lives at ACCT. Effie's Pen Pals are dedicated to helping her learn basic commands, keeping him stress-free while in the shelter, and market her to potential foster parents and adopters. If you want to know more about Effie or see if she is a good fit for you, please contact his Pen Pals at
ashearin @vet. upenn.edu and firstname.lastname@example.org
They have lots of great things to tell you.
