Who can't love a face like this? Whisper is an approximately 4-year-old white & fawn female who is not tattooed. She was found as a stray and came to GALT via Fort Worth Animal Care & Control. Her treatment for Ehrlichia has been completed successfully, and she is ready to finish her medical procedures and start her search for a forever home!


Whisper passed an initial cat test, however, after living with cats in a foster home she decided she would rather chase them. No kitties for Whisper.


Whisper is a perfect petite girl. She has instant love for everyone she meets. When we walk into the room her whippy tail starts going and a wiggly happy dance follows. Whisper is wonderful with other dogs but would also be perfectly content as an only pet with a house full of people. She walks beautifully on a leash, crates well, sleeps well, eats well, gives kisses, doesn't get on furniture though you do have to make sure there is nothing tasty sitting on the counter. Whisper enjoys sitting in the sun on cool days and is smart enough to seek out the shade on warmer days. This little girl has been a perfect foster and will definitely light up her forever family's life!
