Meet Arlene, a 7-month-old female cattle dog/shepherd mix.
She weighs in currently at 30 pounds and will probably be a bit larger, but should wind up a nice medium-size adult. Arlene is spayed, fully vetted, up-to-date on her shots and preventatives, and is micro-chipped. She is also crate-trained and house-trained and walks very well on leash.
At only 5-weeks old, Arlene and her siblings were found abandoned at a local animal control shelter at night, dumped inside a box and left at the doorstep. When rescued, they were all emaciated, anemic, loaded with worms, fleas and other parasites!
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue took care of getting them and all have been adopted. Sweet Arlene (now named Georgia) was also adopted but, unfortunately, the children in her family developed allergies (sometimes a common occurrence), so she is now looking for her new "forever" home and family.
Arlene is a very smart, submissive and well-behaved pup who gets along well with adults, children and other dogs - especially smaller ones. She loves to play and has an overall sweet, loving disposition.
She would probably do well with cats, but hasn't been temp-tested with them. Arlene will make an ideal family pet and has the most adorable ears that are always standing up at "attention."
The children who attend adoption events love to play with her, petting her and rubbing her ears and belly, and she adores the attention.
If you would like to meet Arlene or would like more information on her, please contact her foster via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may contact Angels Among Us Pet Rescue via email at Inquiry@angelsrescue.org.
