Carla is a 9-year-old fawn female born March 10, 2003. Her sire is TX's Trooper, and her dam is D's Desert Dove. Carla has no record on Although some of her littermates are registered, it appears Carla skipped having a racing career.

Carla is a sweet, smaller girl who is cat tolerant.


Carla is 9-years-young and has a lot of play and zoomies in her. She has a sweet, loving personality, but with plenty of spirit. She is being fostered with three cats, and I would definitely recommend indoor cats only with her. She likes to give chase in the back yard, and is a little bratty with one of the cats.

When walking through the house, Carla prefers to be right up against your leg. She loves all the TLC she can get. She chatters, which has earned her the nickname of "Lady Chatterley." Despite having only four teeth, you can still hear the chatter!

Carla's beautiful brown eyes could melt your heart as she gazes into your eyes. Could you be the Forever Home she's been looking for?


-Carla's foster mom
