Mattie [ADOPTED JULY 19] is a tiny female who had the misfortune of being dumped in a high kill shelter at the age of nine. In addition to her advanced age she has a slight heart murmur. This little gal gave someone 9 years of love and she certainly deserved a better fate. She is housetrained but should go out several times a day. The first week after she came into rescue she was quite sad but she is starting to come out of her shell.

A number of wonderful rescue people played a part in saving this little girl, driving her many miles in order to meet up with a Shorewood Volunteer.
