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

When people are walking through the shelter I hear them asking where all the smaller dogs are. HELLO! I am a Puggle, I am a smaller dog, how about looking at me. I am five years old and I am afraid I am not chosen because I need to be the only pet in the home. I canít help it; I want my person all to myself. I never learned to appreciate other pets or children. I did learn to give high fives and I will sit for treats...yummy. Please understand I am not trying to be difficult, I just was not raised around kids and pets. There must be someone that would still like to give me a forever home...isnít there? As you might have guessed by my name, I arrived at the shelter five days before Christmas. I have been waiting for about a month and a half to find a new home, I know some animals wait longer than that but I am anxious to get on with my life. My previous owner could no longer afford to keep me...sad. However by coming the shelter I am getting a second chance at happiness. I am already neutered so you need to pick me; I am all set to go. I am friendly with other cats and dogs. Donít tell the other cats I like dogs, they will laugh at me! Please stop by so we can get acquainted, I just know we can be friends. Remember, because I am the cat of the week you get a discount if, I mean, when you adopt me.
