Pets with Potential: Meet Xena

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Our Christina Guessferd went to the Humane Society of Chittenden County to get to know Xena (a.k.a. Xena: Warrior Princess).

Animal Care Manager Devon Krusko said Xena is 2 years old and came to the shelter from animal control as a stray. But Krusko said the pup's difficult past has only made her stronger.

"She's a pretty active lady," Krusko said. "She loves running. We once had a video on Facebook that got a lot of views of her chasing her tail."

Xena is the perfect pet for a Vermonter who loves outdoor activities like cross-country skiing, hiking and walking.

"As much as she does like to cuddle after she's gotten her exercise, she does need to have that first," Krusko said.

Xena gets along well with other animals and kids, and she loves to have a playmate.

Head to the Humane Society to meet Xena. The shelter is open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
