Pet Spotlight: Meet Neil & Monkey

Neil is a young Shepherd blend whose yellow tan coat, black muzzle, and brown ears make him a visual standout.  Dogs and children are his favorite companions and he has the perfect amount of energy for easy training and fun playing. 

It's possible that he did not enjoy much fun with people during his earlier life, so he performs his own people "vetting" before revealing his silly, warm, and cuddly side.  Rolling and stretching his body on the grass is one of his favorite activities because it feels so darn good.  Neil is ready for a new home and hoping for the person or family who will come and sweep him off his paws.
