"Meet Brittany"~ a female, Miniature Australian Shepherd mix. Brittany is a shy little girl always found laying quietly in her kennel, head up, eyes wide trying to take in her new surroundings. Brittany is a stray but she looks like she is just coming from a home. She is well groomed, her coat is silky and she seems healthy and well nourished. Brittany does need some work on her leash manners but with a little coaxing and trust she will blossom into a wonderful dog. ❤

Brittany is interested & available in finding a great forever person of his own. Could it be you? ♥♥♥♥

Unfortunately, millions of unwanted puppies and kittens have to be euthanized each year in this country. Because of the tragedy of pet overpopulation, we require all of our adopted pets to be spayed or neutered.
