So I may not look like a GQ model yet, but I have a lot of potential. I was transferred here from Broward Animal Care in the hopes of finding a forever home. Can you make my wish come true? When I first arrived my fur was very sparse. The vet believes my patchy coat is the result of poor nutrition, fleas and a dirty environment I previously lived in. Thanks to lots of TLC and a healthy diet of Purina ONE I am on my way to becoming that super model. My fur is growning in and my skin is not so red. I''m super sweet and love to snuggle. I will sit, especially if a treat is involved, and I like to play with toys. I would love a family to call my own. A family who will love me and help me heal so I''ll have a luxurious coat. What do you think? Can I come live with you? You won''t be disappointed if you give me a chance. I''m a Dolly''s Dream Dog so my adoption fee is sponsored and I get to go home with the goodies I''ll need to settle into my new home. Call 954-989-3977 ext. 6 for more details.
