Olympic antics at SLA shelter???
XENA WINS GOLD IN WIGGLING!!!!!. See late-breaking video
Xena has been through a lot. Originally turned in as a young pup. Reason = "too many." Next adopted by a family who did not understand Xena's super high energy, shy behavior and fear of new situations. An unfortunate mistake. They claimed she was "unpredictable" -- but what we have seen is that she knows her friends and is fearful of those who threaten her. That is it!!!
When first returned, Xena (A1003106, 1 yr, a very skinny 29 pounds, on "alert" as of 2/16 and needs out now!!!) would hide in her kennel or curl up in a ball. But, little by little, she learned to trust. Staff treasure her antics. Volunteers love to spend time with her. You can't pass this little bundle of enthusiasm without being enthralled. Once she knows you, it is all love. Xena needs understanding but her devotion is so rewarding and her zest will win any Olympic medal.
Please, please, please give her a chance. Contact the South L.A. shelter at (213) 485-0117 or -0119.
And kindly let us know if you have any questions or can help her. She's guaranteed to make you smile.
