Pet of the Week - Sept. 26, 2016

Hi friends! It's getting to be that time of year...the air is cooling off and a fresh breeze is blowing. Fall is officially here! Hope it's off to a great start for you. We have fun Fall promos and events to celebrate this beautiful season. This is going to be a very fun week!! And so, we chose a very fun dog to be Pet of the Week! Annie is the mom of the 9 puppies we recently had at the shelter. They have found all her puppies homes and we hope this gorgeous young lady is next! She loves people of all ages, enjoys the company of other dogs, does great with cats, and loves to play. She's even housebroken already and has some basic training. She's the perfect instant family dog! Events Update
