Meet A New Best Friend


Meet Jade!

  Did you know that I am famous?  I was on TV  the first week in April strutting my stuff for the evening news!  I am a sweet girl, 5 years young, that is looking for a forever home. I will enjoy playing ball with you and learning new tricks. Even though I only have three legs, I move around the play yard just as well as all the other dogs. I just need some love and attention. Give me a chance; let me be your best friend for life! 
Come meet me today!
