This beautiful young lady appeared on our radar right after the Fourth of July courtesy of our facebook angel, Kathy J. She was in an already overcrowded shelter, and with the influx of dogs from the holiday, she needed OUT ASAP. Judging by her placement into a kennel with a "roommate," she is good with other dogs.

Our thanks to April of Friends of Denali who helped us get this girl to safety; to Shea O'M for the pull; and to Tera, our ever-faithful transporter for the lift to Crossroads and for providing these pictures of "Lina."

AJ is smitten

No looking back, Thumbelina

Lina is tucked safely away at Crossroads in anticipating of her transport to Phoenix in search of her forever home. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

UPDATE 8/24: Thanks to prior adopters Dusty and Tisha (who adopted Luna [now Beauty] from us in December 2017), Chadd and Lina are loaded up and on their way to Phoenix.


The transport is making great time, and the furkids should be in Arizona mid afternoon. We can't wait to meet them.

The kids have arrived in Phoenix

Wendy took Lina for a walk around the yard so she could stretch her legs

Her welcoming reaction to Bert told us there are no "man issues" here

Her first order of business was to take a tour of her temporary foster home

Thanks foster mom, Wendy
