Meet Mary Lou (In Foster)

My name is Mary Lou, but I think Miracle might be a better name for me. You see I was in terrible shape, starving and emaciated when I tried to cross the I10 at the Louisiana/Mississippi border when I tried to cross and was hit by a car. Angels came to my rescue who got me in a truck and started on a mission to save me. ARNO hospitalized me and now I am in a foster home. My foster mom has been taking care of me as I feel better and better. This is what she had to say:
Mary Lou is such a loving and affectionate dog, definitely wants your attention and will give the kisses. If you stop petting her, she will lean into you for more pets. She is very smart and knows several commands. She can sit for a treat even though I don't make her because she is still unsteady due to her surgery. She patiently waits at the opened back door until I give her permission to come in (must have learned from her previous owner), she knows the command for kennel, and does not beg when humans are eating. She appears to be potty trained now that I have been letting her lay in my office when I'm working from home in the day. She is a sweet dog and looking for a home that will give all the loving she deserves. Please consider giving this sweet girl the chance she needs at the good life. Email
