Introducing Lovette!!!

LOVETTE is a big bundle of love! Click/tap here to see and read more about Lovette!

Hi! My name is RODNEY, though some people call me Buddy. I was born about 11 years ago. I came to rescue about this time last year to take care of a nice older lady named Alice. The rescue people said I could stay with her as long as she was able to do things for me that we dogs can’t do ourselves. Unfortunately the time came a couple months ago so it’s time for these folks to find me a forever home. I have worked really hard to shed 12 pounds. I weigh 58 pounds and it's really helped me to get around a lot easier. Click/tap here to see and read more about Rodney!
