NORWALK, Conn. -- An adorable 9-year-old-year-old stray dog found cold and alone outside on Christmas Eve is warm and safe at PAWS in Norwalk, but she still needs a forever home.
Holly, a dainty 35-pound Heinz 57 (mixed breed) female has not been claimed in her three months at the shelter, officials there said.
The big-eyed cutie would make a perfect companion for a loving person.
Unfortunately, she has an unstable history so she can get anxious, but she's worked hard with a trainer to learn she will be OK, according to PAWS.
She is vibrant and active, loves going on walks in the park or on the beach, but is also content being someone's companion.
She likes riding in a car and snuggling by the fire. An intelligent, attentive dog, she walks well on leash.
Holly would do best with someone who is frequently at home. She is working on that with her trainer and on her attention skills, according to PAWS.
Being the only dog would be best, but she may be willing to share a home with a smaller one.
Holly qualifies for PAWS' Senior Pension Plan, which means there is no adoption fee and some lifelong medical follow-up is provided.
