My story

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

Hello there! My name is Skunk, and I am an 1 year old neutered male dog with a unique feature that sets me apart from the rest. It's not my smell, I promise you! It's the adorable white stripe on my face that makes me look like a real-life skunk. I am a black dog with a distinctive white line between my eyes and a patch of white on my throat and chest that makes me absolutely irresistible. I would make a loyal and loving companion for anyone who is willing to take me home. I am full of energy and enthusiasm, and I promise to bring endless joy and happiness into your life. So what are you waiting for? Come and adopt me today and let's start our new adventure together!
Come meet me and all of our Furry Friends Tuesday through Saturday 12-5:30.
