Adoptable Pet of the Week

This beautiful American Staffordshire Terrier named Dahlia has been here a long time (7 years to be exact) and she’s yearning to get out! This energetic 7-year-old wants to play with you, run with other dogs, burn energy with the kids and teach you how to give the perfect belly rub. Dahlia may look a little intimidating but she is a complete sweetheart who loves to meet new people. If you are interested in adopting Dahlia, we urge you to come in a meet her. You won’t be able to go home without this amazing pooch!
