snapsmile 2This big guys name is Snap. He is around 1-2 years old and he LOVES people and his toys. He seems to be good with the other dogs here at the shelter. By that, we mean he doesn’t really pay attention to them.He is not a big fan of cats and he may be to much for small unattended children. Snap is up to date on his vaccines and has been neutered and micro-chipped.







MissyI am Missy.  I am 7 years old, and I am very shy.  I am loving and like to be petted, but I am looking for a quiet home with someone who can really work with me to bring me out of my shell.  I am spayed and microchipped, and am current with all of my vaccinations.  Please come and visit me and see if we can become friends!
