Ok--who could resist the cuteness in this photo?? This is Macee! She is a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take her for a big walk every day; give her something to do. After her job's done, she'll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.

Macee is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is current on her parasite prevention medications.

Adoption hours are from 10:30 am - 5:30 pm! I'm sure she would love for you to say hello. 😀
