COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Darla, a dog at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, is looking for a family to feed her treats this holiday season.

The 6-year-old pitbull mix came to the shelter in May and has been in and out since then. But while she’s been to a few homes, she has a lot of love to give.

“I say, arguably, the happiest girl you’ll ever meet,” said FCDS caretaker Becca Moser. “Her kennel is upfront right when you walk into the adoption lobby. She’s always up on the window, greeting you with a tail wag.”

Even at 6, Moser said Darla has energy and will be happy to join her owner on walks. Her past foster caretakers said she also enjoys curling up on the couch and relaxing with someone.

“If you want to sleep on the couch and take a nap, she’ll sleep right next to you,” Moser said.

Alongside knowing sit and lay down, Moser is working on teaching Darla shake. If someone has treats like Pupperoni, Darla will happily do any trick she knows.

“She’s a hefty girl and she loves her treats; she’s very treat-motivated,” Moser said.

Darla’s adoption fee is just the cost of a license: $18. She also is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations, and is available for meet-and-greets at the Franklin County Dog Shelter, located at 4340 Tamarack Blvd. in Columbus.

Below are some additional dogs up for adoption as well:
