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

I had a previous owner; he can no longer care for me but he is hoping that someone will give me a wonderful home. I know some commands like sit and shake and I am nice with children and other dogs. Some good news all prospective new owners will want to know is that I am house trained. I understand why I had to come to the shelter but I prefer a home with a family. It is my number one wish that I will not be living here for very long because I love people and family life. I used to watch T.V. with my people and there is no television at the shelter! So if you have a T.V. and get the Animal Planet station I hope you will consider adding me to your family. Honestly I donít really care about television but I do care about love and I want to be loved you. I was a stray making my way all over town for some weeks and it isnít easy to find food everyday and warm shelter. Finally a good person from the town brought me here to the shelter. The best thing about that is I get food everyday and donít have to hunt for it. I have a nice warm bed and some toys too. The one thing I donít have is a family to call my own. I think I would have a terrific life if I just had people to love me. I understand that people come to the shelter and take us home to be part of their family, isnít that wonderful! So everybody, I am here just waiting to go home with you.
