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

I am looking for a home with no children because I am used to being the baby of the family. You won’t be sorry if you consider me for your new friend because I am well trained, neutered and house trained. I know how to sit, stay, shake and lie down. I had a wonderful family but they thought I would be happier in a new home because I am not happy when their grand kids visit. I have never been tied or chained up and they didn’t want me to have to be when the kids visit. I can get along with some other dogs and cats. If you already have a dog I think we should meet to see if we like one another. I get very bonded to my people and I enjoy all their attention. I would like to sleep on your bed because that is what I am used to doing. I am a two year old Shepherd mix. I have been well cared for and am in good health. So if you would like a well mannered dog but one that wants all your attention then come by the shelter so we can meet. It is difficult to stay at the shelter when you are used to having the run of the house and to sleeping on the bed. Wow, do you know how difficult it is to live on your own with no place to sleep and no regular meals. I was not sure about coming to the shelter but it is not so bad because I now have a warm bed and regular food. But I heard the other animals talking about adoption and I would like to try that. If I understand correctly you get to live with people who will love and care for you the rest of your life...who wouldn’t want that? I am a little over a year old and I know how to use the litter box so if you want to try adoption perhaps we could do it together. I will be glad to adopt you if you adopt me.
