Dali is a 1-year-old American Staffordshire terrier. She was rescued by an on-duty Dallas police officer who found her suffering after having been shot with BB pellets and with a gash on top of her head. Despite all that trauma, she is in great spirits, loves to give kisses, still has the ability to trust and does well with other dogs. Dali is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and on heartworm preventative. Her Operation Kindness Pet ID is 56936.
