I’m Midnight ! I’m friendly and like to be petted. I prefer to come and sit next to you vs being picked up when looking for attention and love. I cannot wait to meet my forever family! https://bit.ly/2B273EO
I'm Crimson ! I have a lot of love to give. I am social with people and most dogs. Not much is known about my past, so we will have to experience the rest of our story together as we go. Are you the one I’m waiting for? https://bit.ly/3fMrnJ5
