Adopted: Dahlia

Quick Facts: Breed: Collie/Aussie mix Gender: Female, spayed Age: 9 year old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? 8+ Hello! My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go! Personality I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but has adorable bursts of enthusiastic energy!…
