Featured Pet

Emerson is a big boy who has a naturally happy personality and will bring a smile into the home of the family who adopts him. He is a gentle boy who, although good with other dogs, would love to be the only pet in the household. Emerson is housebroken but he chases cats so a cat-free home is a must. He would thrive in a home with people who will walk and play with him. Emerson's adoption fee is $125.
