This beautiful girl was abandoned at a truck stop, and as you can see, she is not doing well at the shelter. She is very depressed and underweight.

Devi is a 3-year-old American Staffy mix. She was reportedly left at a truck stop in Kentucky with another dog who might have been her sister.

The Herkimer County Humane Society (HCHS) says Devi is charming, really friendly, good with cats, and other lower energy dogs. She is quite submissive and a little shy, but absolutely loves affection and is happiest in your lap. She is housebroken, crate trained, and enjoys car rides.
