  • A Little About Me: I am as lovable, snuggable and awesome as they come. I arrived at the shelter and it was discovered that I am positive for heartworm, but don’t you worry about that, the Dr has already started my treatment and that is provided free of charge to my adoptive home….how awesome is that?! I am an affectionate gal who really just wants to be by your side and if that involves couch time for the day I am a-ok with that! I love everyone I meet and just can’t get enough kisses in so come and meet me so I can lay a big fat wet kiss on your cheek. People are my everything so shelter life is really not for me. I watch people walk by and wonder why they won’t take me out for some snuggles, come on in and make my day!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
