Hilary came to the Dearborn Animal Shelter as a stray, but she's clearly a dog meant to be in a home with a family.
The one-year-old cattle dog mix is very good natured, shy, and excelled in her behavior assessment with a trainer. She weighs about 30 pounds, and has a short, white coat with black speckled accents. Her best feature, though, is her cute and curly tail.
And if you're thinking about adopting, now is the time. The Dearborn Animal Shetler needs to adopt 50 more animals through Oct. 31 to be a contender in the national $100K Rachael Ray/ASPCA Challenge.
