Carolina is about 7 years old and VERY shy at first and would definitely be a flight risk in a new home, therefore, adopters MUST have a fenced in yard. Once she gets to know people she is very friendly and an affectionate dog. She gets along well with other dogs, but has not been cat tested. Carolina will do best in a very quiet, adult only home, without a lot of visitors. Carolina had heartworms, but has been treated and is now ready to find her forever home!
