I'm Cindylou Who, Adopt Me!
Australian Shepherd / Labrador Retriever | Young | Female

Nine-month-old Cindylou Who is a sweet, affiliative and cuddly girl. She quickly makes friends with everyone she meets and likes leaning herself against anyone for pets. She enjoys spending time hanging out and playing with other dogs and exploring. She would do well with anyone that has an open lap for her to claim! Cindylou Who has a positive history with other dogs. She currently weighs 28 pounds.

All dogs benefit from training! ARF was named 'Best in the East Bay for Dog Training' in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 by Diablo Magazine. All adopters receive a $50 discount off their first class.
