Meet Cortana!

If you are looking for a easy-going dog, who requires nothing but love, this is your girl! Cortana has had a rough few months, her owner was ill and had to be hospitalized. This left no choice but to send Cortana into a boarding situation. Unfortunately, her owner later passed away, so Cortana was taken in by Out Of The Pits to find her new family.

Cortana is about 8 years old, but do not let her age fool you! This girl is full of spunk and energy! She rides great in a car, walks well on a leash, and is very clean in her space inside.

Cortana has been excellent around the small kids in her foster home, however, the same can not be said for the chickens and cats. They are simply too tempting and she finds herself unable to resist them. We believe she would be good with a doggy brother, and would be happy to have her do a meet, if you think your home would be right for her.

We should also mention, Cortana has shown she is VERY scared of loud, unpredictable noises. We learned this with some local fireworks that were set off. If you live in a neighborhood that has people setting off fireworks often, you would need to be very careful that she is kept safe until it passes. This beautiful lady has been met by several of our volunteers and there isn’t a single one that hasn’t absolutely adored her! If you think your home may be right for her, we would love to hear from you!
