Living life on the fringe!  I just know my life has a taken a huge turn and a very good one at that.  Recently pulled from a high kill shelter,  folks are surmising that I grew up with limited or no stability and as a very young girl did not get much guidance from my person.  As a result,  some might say I am a bit of a “project dog”  in that I will need someone who is pet savvy and very calm and patient.  I can tell you that I’m smart as a whip and I really want to reach out and leave the sidelines and say “hi.”   Perhaps a bit shy when we first meet,  lots of folks will focus on my looks and say I have THE most expressive face and incredibly awesome ears. I also hear my jacket reminds folks of a squirrel!!  I’m really not the type of girl to kiss on a first date but promise that once you let me give you the once over,  I’ll gladly let you take me out for a stroll.  If you have other dogs in your home,  that too would be mighty fine as I can learn so much from them and they give me such comfort.    I’m really ready to leave the “fringe” lifestyle and so hope that soon I can find my new person.

August 2015 – Update on Leah!

People are talking about Leah!  Volunteers can’t help but notice a change lately in Leah.  Much to our delight, she is making quite a                  turn-around from the shy girl we once knew.  At one time, she was more than happy to take the ‘back seat’ and let her pen mates get all the attention.  Now, she’s right there in the middle of the action and seeks attention even from those she has first met.  Much of why she now enjoys being petted and loved on may have to do with spending time with social guys like Dallas, her current pen mate. Leah has always been a girl who enjoys playing with other dogs.  She likes her toys and loves nothing more than to run like the wind in our arena.

Leah is a mid-sized Carolina dog with a sweet, good-natured personality.  She’s also smart as a whip!  We think she’ll be happiest in a home with a socially-adjusted doggie friend.  Come on out and meet the ‘new Leah’!
