Hi, I'm Desi a gorgeous Catahoula mix who loves to play and be around people. I was one of 16 dogs rescued from a home raid in El Rio back in 2011. That means that I have been living at a rescue for 7 years!!! I am grateful to C.A.R.L. for rescuing me but at my age (8-9 years old) I deserve a nice forever home. Can you imagine only knowing love and affection through the hands of volunteers and never having my own family?
Well I think I've earned my stripes and I am hoping that someone can open their home to me. I am medium energy, cuddly and I love the water. I would make a great walking partner as I run along beside you. I'm house trained and good with respectful children. Although I'm good with dogs with proper introductions, I need to be the only dog in the home. I also need a home with no cats. I react strongly when I see stray cats at the kennel, doing backflips to try and get to them.
Desi is a beautiful girl who has lived at CARL for 7 years waiting for her second chance! One of 16 dogs rescued from a ring in El Rio, she is not in her golden years. No senior dog should have to live out their life in a shelter. She deserves a loving home. Please share.
