Featured Pet

Leroy is a handsome boy with personality to match! He loves people and loves to play fetch, but also likes to cuddle up with his person. He is already housebroken. He knows basic commands and volunteers at the center have been teaching him new things as well. He is a smart boy and very eager to please. Leroy is not good around cats or other dogs and needs a home with an experienced dog person. BYC will provide professional training to his new home if needed. Come out to the adoption center to meet this awesome boy! His adoption fee is $150.
