04/04/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/04/15 09:54 AM During the intake Mirage was very sweet. She had a soft body and soft eyes, a wagging tail that was not up, and she was eager to great everyone who passed. She allowed petting and handling and showed no signs of aggression.
04/07/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: What a most excellent girl! She’s cute as anything (although a passerby on the street was adamant she wasn’t “cute,” she was “BEAUTIFUL”). And she is so, so sweet! She appears house trained, is an absolute delight to walk in the park, and does that wonderful heart-melting thing of resting her head on your leg when you sit to watch the world go by. We’re guessing Mirage hasn’t had the easiest of lives judging by the scar on her back and what looks like recent motherhood, but with her floppy ears and happy-go-lucky grin, she is charmingly convincing all she meets that life is nothing but grand. At the end of her walks, Mirage hops back into her kennel with no questions asked, even though currently it is quite small and in the middle of the hallway. Sigh. Mirage is divine.
