ArielAriel is a 3-year-old sweet soft-coated wheaten terrier mix. She was transferred from a local city shelter to Operation Kindness with a severely injured left front leg and road rash in various places. She had been hit by a car and had sustained a few injuries. Even injured and in pain, her tail never stopped wagging, and she is as sweet as could be. She was seen and treated by medical staff.  She has made a complete recovery, and she is looking for a new home. Ariel enjoys playing out in the yard, and she never turns down a good game of fetch. She enjoys playing, but she also enjoys a belly rub and will happily sit next to you while you brush her. Please come to Operation Kindness today and meet sweet Ariel. She will be waiting for you!
