Adopt Rowley

Check out Rowley! He is so cute and he sits so proudly with that smile when someone walks by his kennel. He's a young adult and would thrive with a loving family who enjoys life.  He has been at our shelter for almost 5 months and keeps getting overlooked. This boy is special and needs someone who is willing to spend some good quality time with him. Rowley is smart and eager to learn. He likes people and is good with other dogs.  He is also current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Stop by the shelter and ask to meet Rowley!
