Update 9/4/14: Adoption pending!

A stunning Belgian sheepdog/shepherd mix arrived to the Ramona Humane Society in San Jacinto, California, as a stray and since her arrival, she has fallen ill with kennel cough. Unfortunately, the sickness, though considered to be treatable, has left the unnamed dog in danger - she needs to exit the facility by tomorrow evening.

The profile on the shelter's website for the four-year-old dog reads:

This beautiful girl came to us as a stray so we estimate her age to be 4 years old. She weighs 51.2 lbs. She is absolutely gorgeous! Sweet personality, stunning dog! She's a little overwhelmed being here, but she is eager to be friends!

She is up to date on her shots, seems to get along w/her kennel mate and will be spayed prior to her adoption.

This beautiful dog deserves the opportunity to live out the rest of her life with a family. Please take a moment to network on her behalf.
