Natalie (A1647874) is an owner surrender, and the last two weeks of shelter life have been overwhelming for her. Brought into the Hillsborough County Animal Services, the 30 pound Bluetick and Heeler mix appears to have had a litter of puppies before she was dumped at the shelter. Now spayed and healthy, Natalie is ready to be adopted and find love in all of the right places. Follow her Facebook page here.
Described by volunteers and staff at the high intake shelter of over 300 pets in desperate need of loving homes, Natalie is one of those dogs whose broken spirit and heart brings tears to even the most stoic rescuer.
“A kind vet tech sat out in the rain with her when she was too scared to come in until she could get her in,” had been posted on the Facebook page for Rescue Me Tampa.
Natalie has not been evaluated, however potential adopters are invited to visit and meet her. Click here for Natalie’s PetHarbor listing: #A1647874 “This is a spayed female, black and white Bluetick Coonhound and Beagle.
My name is NATALIE.”
If you are interested in adopting this animal inquire by Animal Number A1647874 and visit the shelter at 440 Falkenburg Road, Tampa, Florida 33619. Animal Services is open for normal business (lost pets, adoptions, rabies tag purchases and investigations): Sunday through Saturday, 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM.

It doesn’t appear they can agree on what “mix” she is. I do know Heelers can be very sensitive. Highly intelligent, very active. They need room and a job. Sharing for a home.
