Pet of the Week 

Meet Sally! She can be shy when she first is introduced, but once she warms up, she is like a shadow. Sally is conservative about who her friends are, but once she decides, she is loyal.  Sally and Tank, (our pit bull), are best of friends in play time. Sally keeps her kennel clean. We are looking for an active family with older children and room to run for this girl who is just waiting to blossom when that right family comes along. Read more about me here.
