Greetings everyone. I am a looking for a place to call home. I am a Boxer mix about two years old. I was lost and wandering about when a gentleman brought me to the shelter. I am treated well and I like people; I actually prefer to live with them. I am easy going and won’t jump up on you. I have found that good manners are for the best. Do you like my ears? It seems the first comment I hear when people meet me is that they love my ears. That is nice to hear but I want you to love all of me! I am just hoping that one day soon I will hear, “Come Abby, we love you and are going to take you home.” Oh what a wonderful day that will be. Could I come home with you? I am at the shelter because my previous person had too many of us; there were cats everywhere! So I now need a new place to call home. I have been waiting a couple months hoping for someone to make me a part of their family. I have lived with other cats and dogs before and I am spayed. Won’t you stop by the shelter and meet me; I think we could have a future together.
