My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Peteys adoption fee has been lovingly sponsored 💜

"Please give me a second chance at life, Griffin pond saved my life before I was killed for medical reasons at another shelter but now I still sit and wait for a real home day after day.

I'm stressed in my kennel, can't seem to settle in here
, I would like a much more docile atmosphere that isn't so loud."

That's what I think Petey would say , he breaks my heart every day .. he's come so far but not close enough to real happiness in a home of his own. He's a young adult 1-4 year old , he's had medical issues fixed with a few bumps and bruises left to show that he's been knocked around a bit in his life.

No other dogs , no cats and no kids .

He needs to learn to trust people so he would have to meet a potential adopter a few times to feel comfortable with them . A meet and greet would be required. If interested in adopting or fostering please apply if not, PLEASE share !!!
