CC Needs a New Home
A letter from my brother in Austin. Know anyone in central Texas who'd like a dog?
Hi Friends,

We are looking for a home for our dog, Her name is “CC”. We have had
her for almost 3 years. She was about 8 months old when we found her at
our ranch in Gatesville. Our Vet tells us that our dog is a
Collie/Shepherd mix (see photos below). She weighs about 50 lbs. and has
been spayed and has all of her shots. She has been a great family pet and
my kids love her. Unfortunately, she bit my 3 year old niece last
weekend at a family get together. They were in the backyard at my in-laws
house and we did not see what happened so I do not know what provoked her to
bite my niece. It was just one bite but strong enough to cause my niece to
need some stitches on the side of her head. CC has snapped at couple of my
kid’s friends in our home before but had never bitten anyone.

I have no concern of her being around my children who are 9, 11
and 13. However, because we frequently have children of all ages in our
home (and not always closely supervised), we have come to the decision to seek
another home for our dog. It is heartbreaking for our family as we have
grown very fond of our dog. I think our next door neighbor
will be as sad as anyone about her leaving as she takes CC for walks and visits
her daily.

CC is very affectionate. I take her with me
jogging. She enjoys going for walks and does well on a leash. She
travels fine in the car and we often take her with us when we go out of
town. She also loves to retrieve tennis balls thrown to her. She
stays in the back yard during the day when we are at work and at night when we
go to bed. She stays in the house when we are home. She is not
allowed in certain rooms in the house and she knows which ones those are and is
good about staying within her boundaries. We have a cat that lives in the
house full time and they play together well. She is fine around other

CC would be a great companion for an adult. If you know
of anyone who would like to adopt a great dog, please let me
