Furry Friends, Forever Homes

This is Miss Mabel, and although she is a happy girl, she could use some holiday cheer.


Mabel has been in foster care for a few years and would love nothing more than her forever family to find her. In fact, we profiled her before, and we are profiling her again because she so deserves to find a loving home of her own.

She was surrendered to a local pound because her previous family decided they didn’t have time for her anymore. Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary got her out of the shelter and into a foster home, and she has been thriving ever since.


Mabel is a a mix between an American Pit Bull Terrier and an American Bulldog, and she is about five years old. Her foster mom calls her a total sweetheart with a heart of gold.

She is crate trained and house broken, and she walks fairly well with a gentle leader. Of course, if she sees something she’d like to chase, she might pull you a bit. And although she knows some basic commands, a bit more obedience training wouldn’t do any harm. She wants to learn, she’s a great listener and she she wants to please her people.

Some of Mabel’s favorite things to do include chasing balls, chewing on her Nylabone and cuddling. And every day, she strives to be the best companion she can be.


Please keep sweet Mabel in mind if you or someone you know are looking to add a four-legged friend to the family. Bringing her into your home is a great way to start off 2017!
