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

Hi, I am eight years old. I am telling you that first because I want you to know that I deserve a home and don’t want you to pass me by because you think I am too old. I lost my home because someone at home developed allergies. It is difficult to leave the only place you called home for eight years. I am doing my best to stay positive but I am not going to lie, I really am worried. Some good things you should know is that I am neutered and house trained. I have good leash manners. I am used to being the only pet in the home so if you already have one please bring it to the shelter so we can meet. I know I look like a big tough dog but I do scare easily at loud noises because I am afraid something bad is happening. Please, please, please help me and take me home with you. I am five years old and so anxious to find a new home. I am well cared for here at the shelter but I am somewhat of a love bug and would like a person of my own. I am happiest when I get love and attention. Just pet me and hear me purr! Anyone who adopts me is getting a real deal because I an already neutered and declawed and litter trained. So there is no reason for me not to join your family.
