Meet Angel. Angel came to the shelter as a cruelty case. She spent the first year of her life chained to a tree. In addition, someone had tied a bandana around her neck so tightly that it grew into her skin causing a massive infection. In addition, cloth cut off the circulation in her neck and caused her face to badly swell. It took months of TLC from a loving foster family, but Angel is now healthy and ready to find a home. Despite a rough start on life, Angel is a playful dog who loves humans and most other dogs. At 1.5–2 years old, she still has lots of puppy energy. She loves to play frisbee, chase, loves running, and enjoys attention from humans. Angel's foster family took her to some training classes so she is learning manners, like not jumping on people, SIT, and being gentle with toys and treats. She has come a long way. With proper introductions, Angel gets along with other dogs who are not dominant. An ideal home for Angel would be with an experienced dog owner who is looking for an active partner to explore the outdoors with. The scar around Angel's neck is still evident, but that doesn't slow her down one bit. She is a HAPPY, HAPPY, JOYFUL dog, full of life.
