Cow-like in color and mannerism, this grass-chewing, low-energy and low to the ground dog does everything but say “moo.”

Clarabelle is a sweet, docile ole girl who contents herself with strolls around the play yard. While not up for much play, she does gets bursts of energy from time to time. Once she gets off the leash, she takes three quick leaps in any direction! She always finds her way back to you, though, because she can’t go too long without receiving affection.  

This sturdy and small pittie came to the shelter after her owner passed. At seven years old, Clarabelle can take a few minutes to warm up to new people and places. But once you offer her head scratches, she will fall right into your lap!

Clarabelle had both cat and canine companions in her previous home, so she would likely make new friends with either in her new one. We would want to see her with other dogs that can offer her space and aren’t too rambunctious. And the same goes for kids, too!
