Pet of the Week


Ding! The baker is in and Cupcake is ready for adoption. Her name describes her perfectly as she is sweet and has a beautiful cinnamon colored coat. Cupcake is energetic and sometimes does lose sight of her manners, it’s hard to bring her down from her sugar rush, so we do ask that kids be at least 12 years old in her new home. Obedience classes would benefit her greatly to help polish up her manners! A dog friend to romp around with would be sweet! She enjoyed playing with her dog friend here. As for cats, they seem a little too tasty, so please no felines! So, if you are looking for a sweet treat Cupcake might be the one for you. Check me out on PetFinder!
