My Project 365: A Dog A Day
I will select a dog a day to share here.
A dog that is sheltered or fostered in the continental US.
A dog that needs a loving home.
A dog that wants a second chance.
This beautiful dog was found as a stray! She needs a loving foster or adoptive home where she can recover from a common doggie-cold and get back to being the great dog we know she is! Please read Wanda’s bio below and consider saving her life!

Meet Wanda (15048264)!
6-8 years old
ACCT says: This beautiful, affectionate girl is an ~6-8 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog/Staffordshire Terrier mix who was brought to the Philadelphia Animal Control shelter as a stray in mid-January. She has the most uniquely colored coat, which looks a bit like cookies and cream ice cream and draws attention from everyone she meets. Unfortunately, no one has stepped up to foster or adopt her yet! Wanda did well in her behavior evaluation; she loved being petted and had no issues with basic or advanced handling. She was a little hesitant of giving up her food, but we’re not sure of when her last meal was when she first came to the shelter and she takes treats very gently. She already knows basic commands like “sit” and appears to be housebroken! Wanda showed no interest in the cats here at the shelter, but was a distracted by the smell of yummy cat food so she should have another test before being placed with them. Wanda met several dogs here at the shelter and while she is friendly, she can be a little pushy in her interactions and would prefer the company of a lower-energy dog like herself rather than a rambunctious pup, as her rumble-tumble days of playing are likely over. Please bring your resident dogs down to meet her to make sure its a good match. Families with children under 8 should bring them down to meet her as well! Wander is a wonderful girl who would make a great addition to many families. Please consider taking a chance on this older girl!
