Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

Well I found out the police can be your best friend when you are in trouble. They helped me when I had no place to go and brought me to the shelter. I am about one year old and I am spayed. The staff thinks I may be a Boxer Bulldog mix. I love everyone and am a gentle soul; I do get along with other dogs. I know I must have had a family at one time because I am spayed but I don’t know how we got separated. Since I know how wonderful family life can be I am hoping a new family will take me in. Please stop buy the shelter and see me, I think we can be good friends. My story is like so many others; I had no home. I was very happy to come to the shelter because of the great care I receive but I do not want to live here forever. I heard that I could get adopted and that a family would make me their own. My goodness that sounds wonderful, I never had a family. I sure will try my best to do everything you ask of me if I get the chance to go home with you. I am hoping that someone will find me this week and that I will get my happy ending. Please stop in and visit; I want to go home.
