JULY 211, 2016:

George is a 9 year old  terrier / hound mix named George. He is a 40lb dog that is UTD on shots. He is neutered and is well behaved and house trained. He is great with other animals cats included, kids of all ages, and a large household. He loves to run around in a backyard but also loves to cuddle and sleep on the couch next to you while watching TV.  He does have benign fatty tumors along his chest that do not bother him.

My father is moving and unfortunately unable to keep George. We would love for him to have a loving forever home. Contact numbers for us are Kim Ownby: 540-294-3187, Harold Bryan: 540-849-9104.
