Pet of the Week


Baby is a 5-6 year old Lab mix that came in as part of a cruelty case. She was in heart failure from a blockage caused by a large amount of heartworms. Baby has been treated for heartworms and is doing exceptionally well. She's off her heart medicine (lasix) and continues to function normally. She's a very happy girl that loves everyone she meets. She gets along fabulously with other dogs and ignores cats. Baby is housetrained and walks like a total lady when leashed. We would love to find this sweet soul a forever home where she will be loved and cherished for many years to come. Please share!
