Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


Darling Dory is a beautiful 3 year old 40 lb flat-coated retriever mix with a silky black coat and a gentle disposition.

This lovely girl was sadly neglected and kept chained in a yard, so is experiencing the joys of a regular meal and a loving home for the very first time. Since Dory’s start in life wasn’t an easy one, she is initially cautious with new people, but is quickly learning that people are kind and they carry treats!

Dory is a fun-loving playful girl who has dog friends of all shapes and sizes. She likes to explore, so would do well in a home with a fenced-in yard. This gentle girl is very clever; she figured out housetraining in just a couple of days, and unlike her namesake from “Finding Nemo”, she has a great attention span!

After just a few days in her foster home, Dory knew she was in good hands, wagging her tail in excitement to see her foster mom and asking to be petted. Dory is making great progress in learning to trust, and is ready to find an openhearted forever home to settle into.
