Petra's Story...
I came to Furry Friends after being found as a stray. No one came to claim me and I am now looking for a permanent home where I know I will be loved forever. I was very scared when I first came but am really enjoying the attention the volunteers give me and now greet them with tail wagging. I also LOVE my dog playgroup where I get to run around with the other shelter dogs. My favorite game is playing tag with the other dogs and taking turns chasing each other, but I also enjoy relaxing in the pool on hot days. Please plan to spend a little time with me in the beginning as I have had a lot of changes lately and like to have a little time to check out new places and people. I will be your loyal companion and friend for life!
