Duchess:  I am a full figured tri-colored girl seeking a family that will take me as i am and not make any judgements.   I am a  former inmate from the Kern County Animal Control Shelter.  My charge was vagrant, i had also been causing problems with traffic.   I had been hit by a car as near as the humans could tell.  My right rear leg was bothering me, but after i got a nice soft bed and some good food, i am as good as new!   I really appreciate the people more about Duchess
Perry is a great looking guy.  He is a real sweetheart and loves to sleep on the bed with you.  He is a young guy and loves to play with the other hounds.  He is house trained and up to date on his shots.  He has not been tested with cats.  Perry is looking for his forever home.  Is that home yours?
