Pet of the Week 

Hello! Let me introduce ourselves. I'm Chanel and FeFe is my BFF... and we were living in a home until our circumstances changed. Now we find ourselves looking for a new forever home. We are both very loving and sweet, but will benefit from being crate trained so we don't have any accidents in the house. With the right family and lots of love and patience, I know we can be your best dogs ever! Read more about me here.
