This is the story of Girlie. She is only about a year old and her entire life has been a stray one … until now. But we’ll get to that in a second.
Girlie first showed up at the Exelon power plant last summer, and that’s where plant worker Kara noticed her. Even though the dog was far from docile, Girlie and Kara formed a bond that lasted throughout the year. With patience and compassion, Kara slowly earned Girlie’s trust. It was apparent to Kara, who has two agility dogs, that Girlie possessed an innate desire to be around humans, even though her feral nature made her wary.
