Pet of the Week: Sapphire

This pretty mama is a pittie and energizer bunny mix with a lot of love to give. She loves human attention of all kinds and would love to be attached at the hip to her special someone! Sapphire is a goofy and outgoing dog looking for a family who will have the time and dedication to keep both her mind and body busy – and she needs a home with no cats or other small critters. If that sounds like you, come on out and meet her!
