She's now at an animal shelter closer to her previous home until a new forever home is found.

Dogs love their owners unconditionally, even after being abandoned.

Seminole Animal Shelter Treasurer Marta Mattingly said they want to be "very careful" finding Cathleen a new home. However, Cathleen was having none of this.
