In a shelter in Smithtown, New York, Dinah waits for someone to call her own. After 952 days in the shelter, the five-year-old dog is often seen leaning on the fence or sitting at the end of her kennel run staring out and looking so sad.
“Pick me, love me,” Dinah’s pleading brown eyes ask whenever anyone looks her way.
Dinah rushes over to the edge of her cage, tail wagging and eyes alert, but then they turn around and walk away. Since February 10, 2014, when Dinah was picked up as a stray, she only has the Smithtown Animal Shelter to call home, and although staff and volunteers try their best to show Dinah the love she deserves, it’s not at all like being home.
Wondering what this girl is like? According to the shelter, the sweet five-year-old dog loves toys, the snow and being around people. She absolutely loves belly rubs and would do well with an active adult family – runners, hikers or maybe train her to be a scent dog or agility athlete? Playful, smart and very easy to train, Dinah does well with other dogs, but would be most successful in an adult only home with no cats.

Dinah is spayed, weighs approximately 60 pounds, is a bull terrier /shep mix.
