Cello, Shot in the Head, Now Looking for Her Forever Home
There are just some stories that capture your heart. Cello's is one of them. In 2014, we launched a campaign to help raise the funds for Cello after hearing of a dog who was shot in the head, with her tail cut off and left to die.
Cello came to The Arrow Fund with a severe head wound due to a close-range gunshot inflicted at least a week prior to her rescue. After being shot by a person, who remains unknown, Cello escaped and wandered into a yard, where she was found and taken directly to the local vet.
Thanks to the quick action of The Arrow Fund, Cello immediately went into life-saving surgery. Her eye had to be removed in order to save her. We have no idea how she survived on her own that long, but she did.
Today, Cello is now up for adoption. This resilient, charming, and loyal German Shepherd is a symbol of just how much a difference loving people can make in a dog's life.
If you haven’t met Cello, you are missing out. This beautiful lady is full of energy and love, and if you love her back, she will brighten your days and be your most loyal friend. Whether she is snuggling with you on the couch or chasing her favorite tennis ball, she is happy just to be with you.
Cello loves playing ball – all you have to do is throw it and watch her bound away after it, bounce it, paw it, bark at it and then bring it to you. If you’re too slow to pick it up, she will lay down next to you, roll over and lean on your foot while she stares up at you. Who could resist?
As a German Shephard, Cello is eager to help out and thrives when she has a purpose or job. She would love to be your running or play partner. As a result of the gunshot wound that cut her field of vision in half, Cello can sometimes get ahead of herself and needs her human to slow her down and help keep her safe. All she really wants is to be near you, but sometimes she loses sight of you because of her vision loss. We guarantee if you keep her close and help her keep track of you, she will never let you down. Cello prefers to be an only pet, and would do wonderful in a family that is looking for that one special dog. With Cello around, you will never want for love or laughter in your home. Please help us give Cello the overdue happy ending she so desperately deserves.
