Birth Year: 2007
Natalie came to us from Minnesota with Wanda, Lightning, Fabio, Inca, Tater, Totter, Foz, Sugar, Newt, and Lady. She is very shy but smart, and has really come out of her shell and bonded with us since arriving. She tries her very best on the treadmill even though she’s a little nervous, and is overall extremely sweet. Her and Fabio look very much alike, but she’s much more of a lady.
Prior to joining our team, Natalie was on a team of about 10 dogs that did 5 mile tours. These loops usually lasted around one hour and happened between one and three times per day. Natalie preferred to be a wheel dog rather than a team leader. The year before she came to Cornell, Natalie, along with Fabio, was completely retired and spent her time going on walks and playing with her friends.
