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!.
The dogs Diezel and Mary; as well as cats Deekan, Callie, Duke, Bo Peep, Smidgen and Romeo have all been adopted and are in their new homes. Congrats to one and all!

The shelter needs just one more new dehumidifier for the kitten area.
