Tammy | Pet of the Week

By on March 9, 2018 at 3:17 pm


Tammy is a cute little gal who appears to have had a hard life thus far involving several litters of puppies. She’s kept her happy-go-lucky personality though, and is just tickled by any attention she receives.

She loves tummy rubs and longs for the day she can just lie in the sunshine in a quiet home away from the noisy shelter. She’s not too keen on attention from other dogs at this time but perhaps the intensity at the shelter is just too much and she would be happy with another canine companion in a home environment. We would be happy to do introductions if you already have a dog.

Tammy is a five-year-old lab/shepherd mix.
