You need a puppy!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application.
We have these 5 sweet puppies available for adoption. These babies are the perfect mutts. There are 3 girls and 2 boys. These sweeties are 16 weeks old and are very shy and need time to adjust to their new surroundings. Once they learn to trust you, they will lay next to you begging for belly rubs. They love to play with toys and other dogs and are working on being housetrained.
These babies are looking for a home with kids 8 and over, a fenced in yard and preferably another dog.
