Hi, my name is Ariel. I am a catahoula that is about 5 years old and I weigh 50 pounds. I came to the rescue after a nice lady stopped and helped me. See, I was just sitting beside the road waiting but they never came. She tried to find them but when she couldn't so I came to the rescue. I was adopted for over three years and recently returned because my person went to heaven. I need you to be my new family.
I can be quiet, easy going girl sometimes but I love to run and play too so I really need a secure, fenced yard at my home. I am kind and loving to children and I want to protect my family. Nothing really upsets me unless someone tries to bother the family but I could never see myself hunting or anything like that. I am a house pet and live inside with you. Consider me a companion for you and the family. I know how to sit, stay, walk on a leash and I am crate & house trained too. I still forget what I am doing and jump up on you sometimes. I did have an accident years ago and caught my chest on a fence (no more four foot fences for me, it will have to be six feet), they sewed it back closed but I have some extra skin that is hanging down. It doesn't bother me so I hope you feel the same about it. I really want to run and play with other dogs my size or maybe you want to give me extra attention.
I have been spay, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is 150.00 and you can start the process by completing an application at www.dogsasfamily.org. I like you already.
