Angel C. is a sweetheart searching for a new family


Dear Winston:

Greetings! My name is Angel C., and I’ve been living at the Humane Society of Rome shelter since the beginning of the New Year.

The reason I am here is because my owner had to move and was unable to take me along.

It has been a little adjustment (well, a big one I suppose) on my part, but you know what? I am young and optimistic! 

I am a 2-year-old terrier/American pit bull/retriever/Labrador mix female.

I am medium-sized, and I get along very well with other dogs, preferring males more than females.

I am sweet and good with children. I really am looking forward to meeting my new family as soon as possible – and perhaps a meet and greet outside of the kennel area would be the best. Then everyone can see my true personality — and a great personality it is! 

Thank you, Winston. Love, Angel C. 

Dear Angel C. 

Thank you so much for writing. I love your photo – it certainly shows off your personality!

You are adorable, and I wish you the best of luck in finding a new home and family. Readers, stop in and see this little angel and all of her friends, both canine and feline.

They are waiting for you!.

Thanks! Winston
