Dolly is a 1-year-old full-grown Aussie Cattle dog, but still has the energy of a puppy. She loves to go on long walks and play in the dog park. She especially loves a good old-fashioned game of fetch! Dolly knows how to walk nicely on a leash, although she is guaranteed to stop and socialize with everyone she passes.

Dolly is great with other dogs, people, and kids. Since Aussie cattle dogs are high-energy, it is best if she goes to a home with older kids, who will be able to keep up with her. Dolly loves nothing more than a walk or a game of fetch followed by cuddle time — this little girl thinks every lap was meant for her.

Dolly is currently being cared for by New Leash On Life is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization which rescues dogs from county/city shelters, rehabilitates and/or trains them as necessary, and adopts them out to loving families.

NLOL also has a program called Lend a Paw, which trains some of the rescued dogs to be Social/Therapy dogs to help people in need. Individuals are also invited to join the LAP team with their own personal dogs if the dogs have the required obedience and temperament for therapy work.
