Leisel is a beautiful female lab mix that is at our animal shelter in Texarkana. She walks fantastic on a leash--as if she has had a lot of training. She is a very calm dog to be so young. Her estimated age is two years old. She would make an excellent friend and companion! She does not bark--a very quiet dog. She loves to run and play but is also down to earth and gentle.

Leisel and her sister Tara are both up for adoption at Animal Care and Adoption Center and if you are looking for a beautiful and well mannered dog to enter your life, these girls are at the shelter waiting for you.

Leisel loves affection as you will see in the video. She is not afraid of water either so if you are a boating or lake sort of person, you could even take her along on your weekend trips! She will stay close without the worry of her running off. She likes to chase balls and is good with other dogs. Should could easily learn to run beside you if you are a runner or next to your bike because she is eager to please and unlikely to pull you down or trip you up.

It is so unfortunate that there are thousands of dogs that are euthanized every year in our local shelter when there are so many dogs that would make fabulous pets. Please help us make a difference by spreading the word--share this blog on your Facebook page, Tweet about it too.

The shelter's adoption fees range from $40 to $144, depending on the gender and size of the animal or whether they have been spayed or neutered yet. You can also have your pet micro-chipped for only $20 right at the shelter! That way if your pet is ever lost, he can be returned to you quickly.

The Animal Care and Adoption Center is located at 203 Harrison St., Texarkana, Ark. 71854 and is open Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
