This lovebug is Abril. She is a Terrier mix, only a year old, and a proud mama to 8 adorable puppies! Abril came to us from a high kill shelter down South and surprised us to soon learn she was halfway through a pregnancy. She is very affectionate, ready-to-please, and loves to lie across your lap while you watch TV. Abril is loving of people and gets along with other dogs but hasn’t learned when to leave them alone. For this reason we recommended Abril goes to a home with no cats because she she tends to torment them. At her foster home she has gotten over the 3.5’ tall section of chain link fence to play with another dog but has no desire to otherwise. Abril is eager to learn and make the right family complete!

Before adoption, Abril will be spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $225.
