Families, children, and dogs

Small children (5 years and under) and small dogs don’t always mix and is one of the top reasons dogs are surrendered to kill and no-kill shelters in the United States. As a result, Pet Savers does not typically adopt dogs to families with very young children unless the circumstances are fitting.

Pet Care: Dogs

The following dogs have been placed through Pet Savers!

Ben (Male)

Hey, Hey!! Ben the Jack Russell here. I'm 6 months old and high energy. Not house trained yet, and not neutered, but I need a home where an active little dog will be welcome. Pet Savers will get me up-to-date and I will be ready to go. You must have a vet already, and it would be good if you'd read up on my special breed.

Harry (Male)

Hey, want a really unusual challenge? I am an adorable 3 1/2 year old small dog that came from a breeder. Due to the situation, I turned out not quite "right." I LOVE other dogs and maybe children, but I am afraid of adults. If you are near a door and I want to go in or out, I will not as long as you are standing there. I am not housetrained, but a doggie door would be a big help. Do not expect me to be a lap dog.

No first time dog owners, and you must have a veterinarian already.

Rusty (Male)

I'm a Hound/Terrier mix. I came from DeSoto Animal Control and am thankful that Pet Savers saved me from being euthanized. I am a large and powerful guy who loves to play tug of war. Because of my strength and the fact I like to grab whatever might be dangling from your hand I need a home without any small children. Also I'm going to need some leash training because I don't like to wear a leash. I don't want to brag but I think I'm a really good looking guy. I mean look at that picture you gotta agree I take a great photo. The only way to see what a great guy I am is to stop by and meet me.

Nora (Female)

I am a beautiful female German Shephard mix that was sadly dumped at my rescuers home. They couldn't find a home for me, so I am here at Pet Savers to hopefully find one. I am about 56 pounds and sweet as a button. I am calm, listen very well, and get along with kids and dogs. I've never met a cat, but I am intelligent and willing to learn how to live with all members of my new family. If you would like to meet me, fill out an application today!

Gumbo (Male)

You might remember me from when I was found not too long ago and brought to Pet Savers. No one came forward, so I am looking for a new home. I am a big sweetheart, emphasis on BIG! I am at least 100 pounds and have a mastiff build, but I could be 100 different breeds! I am relaxed most of the time, happy to go walking or get pets. There are some dogs here I don't like, but otherwise I get along with everyone. I know a few tricks, like sit and stay, and would love to learn more with you! Do you have room for a unique boy like me?

Issac (Male)

Isaac was found on Barksdale AFB. He’s a big, beautiful (appears to be full-bred) Golden Retriever. He’s got a wonderful temperament, can sit, lay down, give you his paw, and who knows what else. He’s a large dog… approximately 75 lbs. He seems friendly with other dogs and people. He appears to be an older dog. He may even be house-trained. He doesn’t jump on you… and so far, we haven’t even heard him bark. He would make a wonderful pet for a family! Petsavers Shelter. Reunited with owner 7/2008.

I thought that, with a name like "Barksdale" it would be a good place for me.

Max Boy (Male)

I’m a super-sweet 7 year old Shih Tzu. I’m small at only about 15 pounds. My owner has had me my entire life, but is going through some personal issues and is having to move to a place that doesn’t allow pets. She’s very sad and so am I, but I know Pet Savers will find me a new loving home. I’m housetrained and at night I like to sleep in my doggie bed. Because of my age, I do well in a home without any small and rambunctious children or other hyper dogs. I like a more laid-back lifestyle. I travel well, but not on long rides as I tend to get car sick. I’m not too keen on a leash either. I am not destructive and I’m not a digger and like to spend most of my days sleeping or cuddling with my owner. I’m UTD on shots and neutered. If you’d like to meet me and you have the environment I need, please come meet me at Pet Savers’ shelter. Adopted 6/10.

Isabelle is a medium sized one year old female dog. My husband and I have had Isabelle for about 8 months, she is a very well behaved dog and loves to play and snuggle. She gets along well with other animals as well as kids. She loves to run outside and play with her toys. Since we've had her for so long she is very well trained and knows lots of tricks. Isabelle is also great in a car and loves to go places with us. She is a very sweet young dog and deserves a great place to call home. If you are interrested in providing a great home for Isabelle please contact Lindsey at (209) 890-5251. Adopted 12/08/

Painter-reserved for the President (Male)

Hi, my name is Painter and I am a pure-bred Portuguese Water Dog. I was born on September 15, 2007. My owner took me to Pet Savers because the town house we lived at wouldn't let him have but one dog and he already had a Poodle. He hid me out for a long time, but then my owner was turned in by some mean neighbor and the town house people said I had to go. My owner was very sad, but he knew that Pet Savers would find me a good home. My friend, Linda Shemwell, told me that President Barack Obama wants a dog just like me! But she's e-mailed and written and they aren't responding. If the Obama family DOESN'T want me, I already have someone who will take me forever. Pet Savers got calls from wonderful people all over the U.S. I wish there were more of me to go around! I'm neutered, though, so no little Painters. Adopted by Pet Savers Shelter Mgr. 3/09.

Cracker (Female)

Did I hear you say I am cute?! Thank you, mommy said I was a pretty girl all the time. My mommy is sad because she had to find me a new home. She said I need a home that has a child or someone that can play with me and run with me in the yard. She said if only I could find a family that has someone that could keep you company and run with you in the yard. "You are so loveable and I like the way you smile at me when I come outside to pet you and give you puppy treats." I do like smiling at her, not every dog has grinnage like I do. My 1st birthday is in April and I will let you plan a surprise party for me. Oh yea mommy said not to forget to mention that I just got spayed because there are too many puppies like me that can't find a good home. A BEAUTIFUL Yellow Lab mix ...now at Pet Savers Shelter. Oh, boy, somebody is picking me up tomorrow or Sat. and I'm going to live in Minden with kids and dogs! Adopted 3/28/09.

Toby – $100 fee (Male)

Hi, my name is Toby who walks on fire. You can call me Toby for short! I am a pure-bred AKC registered Siberian Husky. I was born in November 2007. I am rare because its hard to find all white huskies with beautiful blue eyes like me! I love to play! I am currently up to date on my shots, but my owner says I will need some the end of this month. I have not been neutered yet. I Love to play outside, but love to be inside too, especially at night! I am crate trained and will howl when i need to potty! I do need some training. I am very very intelligent! My owner says I am one of the smartest breeds out there. She says the only reason she can't keep me is because I am too strong for her weak wrists. She had to have surgery on them! Her husband works longer hours and can't help out much 🙁 I can learn anything you want me too because I am so smart! I do need a medium to large fenced (4' to 6')back yard! I love toys and bones to keep me busy so i don't dig in the yard! I can play fetch! I like my belly to be rubbed and sometimes will rub against your legs like a cat to get a rub! I like to howl a little to get your attention, but very rarely bark! I love kids, but if they are smaller I might be too big! I love other dogs around my size, but will prefer to be the dominant one! I am very curious about cats, I have never hurt one but play too rough with them is what my owner says! I haven't quite learned to walk on a leash, and don't like to be grabbed by the collar, but again with training I will learn...I am still young and eager to learn!! My owner says I have some along way!! I love plenty of water, and eat Iams lamb & rice...although any lamb & rice food will do good...just no fillers please! I love getting my nightly treat to go home(crate) and hope you will continue the same! I know you will love me! Please take me home and give me a good home like my current owner has!!

Emerson (Male)

I’m part of the “E” pups because our rescuer is named Eddie… so, all of our names start with an “E”. “Bark!” Anyway, I don’t know my alphabet… just the “E”. I am some sort of Terrier mix… can’t you tell? Grrrr! I’m the cutest and littlest thing you ever did see in your whole life. I’m about 6-7 weeks old and have had my first set of shots. Your $60 adoption fee will get you a voucher to get me neutered when I come of age. Adopted 4/24/09 and returned the next day because he seemed sick. He is healthy now. Pet Savers Shelter. Adopted again 4/30/09. Message from Pet Savers: The “E” pups were rescued from a pound in Texas. Twelve pups were initially rescued… all very sick. Six pups did not make it. The remaining six hopefully are over the hump, but they are still weak and will need special attention… preferably in homes without a lot of stress and with individuals who can give them special attention and care. The pups appear to be from 3 different litters. All the pups will most likely be smaller dogs when grown. These little guys really deserve a chance at a good and healthy life.

Javier and I are very happy about that because there are just too many dogs awaiting homes… and now, we are part of that group. I would love to have a home where I’m part of the family.

Hoover (Male)

I came to Pet Savers as a puppy on August 23rd, 2009, with my siblings after we were abandoned in Gloster, La. We were mangy, covered in fleas, and emaciated. As you can see, I'm a handsome man now! I'll probably end up living my life out at Pet Savers because most people don't want to give a dog like me that's grown up in a shelter, a chance. Every now and then, someone comes along, though, that renews the faith of the people at Pet Savers. Those are the people that come in and look for the "unadoptables". There was a man from MO who drove all the way down to Shreveport to get me, but I wasn't the dog he wanted after all, so he left empty-handed. I'm active and high energy. I currently live with another large female. She's older and sometimes I get on her nerves, but she puts me in my place. I'd do well in a home with another large female, but I'm not sure how I would do around another male. I'm a large Chow/Lab mix. I'm neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and have always been on heartworm preventive.

I am a 4 year old Bichon Frise. I’m small… only about 14 pounds… super-sweet and affectionate, but a little shy. I was found in the middle of 5 lanes of traffic and I was frozen stiff from fright. Luckily, a nice lady stopped traffic and rescued me from certain death. I’m micro-chipped from my breeder… but they could not locate my adopter and the breeder didn’t want me back. I don’t understand why some humans are so uncaring. Luckily, I was found by someone who knew a board member of Pet Savers who contacted the Shelter Manager… and now, here I am at Pet Savers. Just as soon as I thought humans were uncaring, I found some really nice and caring humans at Pet Savers. They care about me and what happens to me… because they know I cannot care for myself. I’d love to have a home where I can live forever and be loved and cared for. Pet Savers’ shelter. Adopted 9/5/09.

I’m not sure what my story is… ‘cause I came straight to Pet Savers from their vet. I’ super-cool, though. I love attention and I get along great with other dogs. I run with a whole slew of other dogs at Pet Savers… and I’m kenneled with three small dogs. I’m not sure if I’m housetrained, but I’m sure I could learn really quickly.

Stormy and Marley (Female)

We are super-sweet female Schnauzers. I (Stormy-left) am 3 years old and I (Marley-right) am 2 years old. Our owner is having to rehome us because she is now a truck driver and just doesn't have time for us anymore. Our adoption fee is $100 each or $150 together. We are housetrained, but because our owner has been away a lot, we haven't been able to hold it so we have pottied in the house. We are very smart, though, and know we can be retrained. We get along fine with other dogs, but we really haven't lived with cats, so we're not sure about them. We travel well in a car and walk well on a leash. We are not destructive and we don't dig. We do ok during bad weather too. We are spayed, up-to-date on shots, and have always been on heartworm preventive. We do not have to be rehomed together, but if you'd like to adopt us together, our adoption fee is $150. Separately, our adoption fee is $100 each. If you'd like to apply to adopt one or both of us, please email petsavers@petsaversshreveport.org for an adoption application. If by March 26th, 2011, we have not found a home, we will be coming to Pet Savers' shelter. Adopted 4/11.

I can’t hear you… but can you hear me now? Bark! I’m a super-sweet 1 year old beautiful Australian Shepherd mix of some sort. I was found as a stray in Shreveport by a nice family when I was about 4 months old. They’ve been trying to find me a home, but because I’m deaf, they can’t seem to find me a home. Also, they don’t have a fence or the time to keep me because of their busy schedules. They signed me up for training at Petsmart, but only did 2 weeks because they just didn’t have the time to take me. I will come with the remaining 6 weeks of training for free! I’m neutered, UTD on shots, and have been on heartworm preventive the entire time my rescue family has had me. I have a real playful personality, despite being deaf… and I’m great with other dogs, kids, and cats. If you have a huge heart and would like to help a special-needs dog like me… I’m back at Pet Savers after being adopted 12/09. Adopted 9/10.

Don’t you trust me? I promise I won’t mess with my spay scar if you’ll take off this stupid collar! Please… bark! Ok… gosh… I’ll keep it on for a little while longer! I’m a super-sweet and small pointer mix of some sort. I’m about 8 months old and about 30 pounds. I was rescued by a local vet’s office and then rescued again by a local animal activist. Pet Savers tells me there are good people in this world even though I wasn’t cared for before. Now that I’m in the caring hands of Pet Savers, I know that I will have a home even if I’m not adopted right away. My rescuer found out that I travel good in a car except I drool. It’s probably because I’ve never been in a car before. I walk good on a leash too. I’m not sure if I’m housetrained, but at Pet Savers I’ve been staying in the office until I heal and I’ve been letting them know when I have to go out. I get along with other dogs and cats (and there are a lot of them in the office). I’m submissive, gentle, and sweet. I’m spayed, UTD on shots, and heartworm negative.

I love to jump, jump, jump� and play, play, play� so, I�m sure I�d do great in a home with another dog that loves to do the same. I probably would not do good in a home with a dog that doesn�t like my in-your-face bounciness! I�d do really great in a home where someone is home all or most of the day. I�m neutered and UTD on shots. If you�d like to meet me, please come by Pet Savers� shelter. Disclaimer: Because we are a no-kill shelter, we have huge emotional investments in all of our animals. As a result, Pet Savers screens all potential adopters. If you do not wish to be screened, please visit Caddo or Bossier Animal Control and save a life. Adopted 2/10.

Merlin (Male)

My name has been changed because I'm actually a "return" to Pet Savers. I was adopted earlier this year and returned after some prompting by Pet Savers because they felt it was possible my adopter was not able to care for me. It's possible that I was kept chained outside. I'm a super-sweet 4 year old Maltipoo. I originally came in with Gabby (a Yorkie) because our owner became ill and could not care for us anymore. My original owner gave Pet Savers a lot of information about me. I'm laid back and will hang on to you like a baby. I love to curl up on the couch or bed with you. I'm housetrained and do really good on a leash. I may need some re-housetraining due to my most recent adoption. I get protective if other dogs come into my territory, but I do run with other little dogs and only seem to have a problem with one male Shih Tzu. I seem to be fine around cats as well. Like most dogs, I don't like thunderstorms. I'll shake and get very nervous. I'm neutered and UTD on shots. I'll be getting a heartworm test soon because it's not likely I have had preventive since my latest adoption. If you'd like to meet me, please come by Pet Savers' shelter! Adopted 12/10.

Clyde (Male)

Clyde's my name because I was found running loose on Clyde Fant Parkway. The Pet Savers people think I'm a Pug-Boxer. (Does that make me a Puxer?) I'm a little shy, but coming around and playing with the other smaller dogs. I got neutered already and I got my shots. Pet Savers Shelter. Adopted 2/10. Returned 5/10...What's up with that? I'm sad. Adopted again 5/10.

Penny (Female)

Bark! I’m a super-sweet and social Shih Tzu. I’m about 7 years old, spayed, UTD on shots, and heartworm preventive. My owner has had me his whole life, but he can no longer care for me. I’m very sad because I love him so much, but I know that Pet Savers will find me a new home where my owner will care for me as much as he did. I’m puppy pad trained, great with older kids, other dogs, and cats. Because of my age and size, I’d prefer a home where there are no rambunctious small children. A home that has a peaceful environment would be more suitable for me. At night, I sleep on my bed in the kitchen… I travel well… and I walk good on a leash. I am not destructive and I don’t try to dig. I have a great temperament and am very laid back. If you’d like to meet me, please come by Pet Savers’ shelter. Adopted 4/10. Returned 12/10 because the people were "moving"... and Penny came back in horrible condition. We TRY to do the best adoptions, but sometimes we fail. Adopted 3/11.

Dallas (Male)

Believe it or not I'm a stray and no one ever came forward to claim me. Since no one claimed me I am available for adoption. I'm a sweet little Chiweenie mix. I get along with other dogs and kids. I can't wait to meet you.

Chewy (Male)

Yo! It’s me, Chewy! Here I am hanging out in the breezeway with lots of other dogs who are special enough to be “breezeway” doggies. I’m about 18 months old and a Shih Tzu mix of some sort. I’m little at only about 18 pounds. I was a stray that was rescued. I was with my rescuer for about 2 weeks, but she has other dogs and just couldn’t keep me. I’m not housetrained… so, I need an owner that has the patience to train me, but I’m super with dogs, people, and probably with cats too. I walk great on a leash and I’m not destructive or a digger. I’m neutered, UTD on shots, and heartworm positive. If you’d like to meet the most loveable dog in the world… you’ve GOT to come meet me at Pet Savers’ shelter! Adopted 5/10.

Jessie – on left (Male)

Hey! I’m Jessie on the left and that’s my woman, Susan, on the right. Yeah, that’s right… I said “My Woman”. Bark! Actually, she wears the pants in this pack, but sometimes she let’s me think I’m in charge. Woof woof! We came to Pet Savers together after our owners became ill and could not take care of us anymore. We are very sad that they are ill, but we know that they only want what’s best for us and they know Pet Savers will only adopt to responsible pet owners. Ok… so more about me. Woof! I’m a 2 year old dachshund. I’m housetrained, UTD on shots, and neutered. I get along well with other dogs, cats, and people. I’ve only had one owner. I am not destructive and I don’t dig. As for Susan… she’s a Border Collie mix that my owners found as a stray puppy, but she got adopted without me! I’ll miss Susan, but I’m sure there are a lot of other fish… er… I mean doggies in the sea… er… I mean world. Pet Savers’ shelter. Susan adopted 5/10. Jessie adopted 6/10.

Little Skynard (Male)

Bark! What's up people?! I'm a small (maybe 8 pounds) Rat Terrier. I was rescued from the pound after a local rescue group sent out a plea that I needed help. Pet Savers thinks I might be about 6-7 years old or so... not sure. I'm not sure what my story is or why I was dumped at the pound, but I'd love to start my life over with a loving owner who will let me live with them for the rest of my life. Right now, I'm living in the office around a lot of cats and kittens and other small dogs. I get along with everyone. I'm now neutered and UTD on shots and heartworm NEGATIVE. If you'd like to meet me, please come out to Pet Savers' shelter. Is today my lucky day? Adopted 5/11.

Bobbie Lou (Female)

I'm a super-sweet pure-bred Shih Tzu born on 2/14/2008. I'm coming in with many more Shih Tzus from a breeder who has decided she no longer wants to breed. Pet Savers is always happy to hear when a breeder decides to not breed anymore. I'd love a home where I can finally be a family pet. I've lived outside my entire life, so I'm NOT housetrained, but I'm sure with the right owner, along with patience and understanding, I could learn. I'm small at around 10 pounds. I'm UTD on shots and am scheduled to go to Pet Savers' vet on Tuesday, August 31, 2010, for spaying, rabies, and heartworm testing. If you'd like to meet me, I'll be back on September 2, 2010. Pet Savers' shelter. Adopted 8/10.

Cairo (Male)

You know, they say there is a home out there for every dog. Some dogs, though, need special homes and I’m one of them. I came in with Camelot. Unlike Camelot, though, I’m only partially blind and may be somewhat deaf. Camelot and I were rescued by a lady from someone who posted “free puppies” at their home. From what the lady was told, we are sheltie/catahoula mixes, but not sure what our daddy is. To Pet Savers, we look a little bit like a Great Pyrenees. I’m about 8 weeks old and UTD on my shots. I love to smell your face and give you kisses. Oh, and I love to sleep. Right now, Camelot and I are living in the office at Pet Savers around all the cats and a couple of other dogs. If you’d like to adopt me, you MUST be an experienced dog owner. I will need lots of time and attention, but in the right hands, I know I can learn to be housetrained and get around just fine. If you’d like to meet one very special little puppy, please come by Pet Savers! Fostered because of illness. Adopted 7/10.

Spud (Male)

Hey, what's up, ya'll?! Spud's the name... fun's my game! I'm a sweet one year old Jack Russell mix... bob tail and all. I'm a little dude at only about 15 pounds or so. I don't like the word "little", though... I think I'm "fun" size! My owners thought having another dog might be a good thing to keep their older dog company. Uh... he hates me, man! Can you believe that?! Anyway, my owners have only had me about 2 weeks and they've had their other dog a long time... so, I guess it's time for me to hit the bricks. They have found out a lot of neat things about me, though, in the two weeks they've had me. I'm housetrained, good with kids, other dogs, and cats. I sleep in a kennel at night, travel good in a car, walk good on a leash (except I like to pull a little), and I'm not destructive and I don't dig. I don't know any basic commands, but hey... I'm a smart little... er, I mean smart "fun" dude... so I know I could learn. I'm UTD on shots and going to Pet Savers' vet on Monday, August 30, 2010, for neutering and heartworm testing. I should be back sometime around September 1st. If you'd like to meet me, come on out! Bark!... I'll be waiting! Pet Savers' shelter. Adopted 9/10.

Baucis (Female)

Ho hum. Hi, ya'll. Do you got a ball or something for me to play with? I'm one of the boxer mix pups that Pet Savers is bringing in a little bit at a time. I'm the sister of Bianca, Barnaby, Bellona, and Bromius. There are 8 of us all together. The other 2 can come in once we find homes. Bianca and Barnaby have already found forever homes. Our daddy is a boxer and our mommy is a lab mix of some sort. We are about 10 weeks old and will be large when we grow all up. We are UTD on shots and ready now for our forever homes. If you'd like to meet me, please come out to Pet Savers' shelter! Adopted 7/10.

Daisy Duke (Female)

I'm a super-sweet 4-5 month old Catahoula/lab mix of some sort. I was found dumped on a dead-end road and left to fend for myself. I was starving and thirsty when my rescuers found me. They've been really nice to me. They brought me to Pet Savers where I was given some white stuff in my mouth (they said that was to deworm me)... put some stuff up my nose (they said that was to prevent kennel cough)... and gave me a shot. They also put some stuff on my back (they said that was for the fleas that have been making me crazy). I'm already feeling much better. I'm small right now at only about 15 pounds. When I grow up, I'll probably be medium-sized. I'm extremely sweet and submissive (whatever that means). I'd love a home where I never have to worry about going hungry or being abandoned ever again. I'm scheduled to come to Pet Savers' shelter on August 7, 2010. In the meantime, if you'd like to meet me, please call Kevin at 318-286-6203. There is a screening process to adopt me and my adoption fee is a suggested donation to Pet Savers of $30 for their help in rehoming me and to help assure I go to a good home, plus you'll get a low-cost unpaid voucher to get me spayed/neutered. After I come to Pet Savers, my adoption fee will be $80.00. Adopted 9/10.

Trace (Male)

Hi, ya'll. My name is Trace. I was found limping off of Sligo Road in Bossier City by a really nice lady who picked me up. She took me to her vet and he determined that my right front leg is fused the way you see it. I'm not sure what happened, but maybe I got too close to a car of something. My injury is old, though, so I've lived this way for a while now. Several people suggested that she take me to the pound. When she called the pound, she was told I would be euthanized. She's been trying to find me a new home and someone who had the money to take care of my injury, but she's not been able to. She brought me to Pet Savers to see if they could help. She left me in the car and went to talk to the lady inside. The lady said they simply cannot help out every case, but that they would take a look at me and make a determination after they met me. Hardy har! That was all it took... and you know what?... Pet Savers said "YES"! You know why?... well... it's 'cause I have the best personality! I met Little Momma... and Oreo... and half the dogs in Area 1. Even with some of their vicious barks... I didn't care. I walked around with my tail wagging and said "whatever dudes"... bark all you want! I'm a lover, not a fighter! I'm scheduled to go to Pet Savers' vet on Monday, August 8, 2010, to be assessed as to how what they plan to do about my leg. I may have to have an amputation (whatever that means)... or they may end up re-breaking my leg and putting a pin in it. Whatever they will do, I know I'll be in good hands!

There's only one problem. Pet Savers needs help to pay for my surgery. They agreed to help me and will make it work somehow, but if others were to help out, it wouldn't put such a burden on the Pet Savers' account. Whatever you can spare... $10... $20... the amount doesn't matter. If you can help, you can donate in several ways: You can donate directly to Pet Savers' vet at Southern Hills Animal Hospital, 641 Bert Kouns, Shreveport, LA 71118, OR at the shelter any day of the week, including weekends 12-4:30pm at 4380 Noyes Drive, Shreveport, La., OR mail it to: Pet Savers, 632 Dudley Drive, Shreveport, LA 71104, or you can donate on-line (but keep in mind a percentage is taken off the top if you make your donation online).

Now, a little bit about me! I'm about 3 years old. I'm a Golden Retriever mix with a heart of gold and a temperament to match. I get along great with people of all ages, other dogs, and cats. My rescuer says I travel great in a car, but need training on a leash. She says I haven't been destructive at her house and I haven't tried to dig. I'm heartworm negative, UTD on shots, and scheduled to be neutered at the same time they work on my leg. Once that's all done, I'll be ready for adoption. You can check on my status by emailing petsavers@bellsouth.net.

Love and kisses... Trace Adopted 3/12 by one of our best Pet Savers friends.
