I’m an incredibly sweet, affectionate, (but shy/scared) Aussie mix girl! History My former life was rough and scary and left me quite shy and nervous about new people, new places, and unexpected sounds. Before being rescued, I spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by the people who were supposed to be my people, and where I was before that was also awful, but I try not to think about it. I am thankful every day that the Cornell vet students who came to the farm where I was chained out, offered to take me from those mean people. And I am thankful that those people didn’t want me, and were happy to hand me…

Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! 6+ History I was found as a stray and landed in a rough, dismal shelter in Kentucky. Very hard for any dog, but especially for a blind dog who can’t see what’s going on.

They loved me a lot, took me to fun clicker training classes, got me a needed hip surgery, and helped me with all of…
