Hi I am Rhetta. I am safe and sound in a foster home, now!! I was on death row, at a local shelter. Not because I was bad or sick, but because my owner didn't take care of me and when I got lost didn't come and get me from the shelter.
I am a sweet and happy girl. I need some training on not jumping up to greet you but I am just so excited to be alive. Would you please give me the loving home that I deserve?
If you're interested in adopting me, please email email@example.com Subject : Rhetta.
