Personality: Pocahontas is loving and sweet-natured. You can see it in her eyes how appreciative Pocahontas is for the [foster] home she is given. She thanks you with the cutest wag on her stumpy tail. All she wants is love and affection, though never being pushy about it. Pocahontas has a gentle temperament and a quiet confidence. She approaches everyone with a friendly demeanor. 

Coat: Spaniel-like coat, low shedding

Training: House manners and socialization

Potty trained: In progress

Health: Healthy  

History: Pocahontas was at a Los Angeles shelter for three weeks with no inquiries. Three weeks is a long stay in "shelter-time" and what we label as "at-risk." Pocahontas was hidden in a back building with little exposure to the public. When WHDR visited her, she was curled up in the corner of her kennel. She didn't even bother to get up to acknowledge us. It was clear that she had given up and was at lost for hope.
