These two very friendly, sweet-natured puppies are available for adoption from the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society. They are being fostered by members of the Centre community, and we want to make sure they find loving homes where they will get plenty of exercise and attention. They are brother and sister, are between 4 and 5 months old, have been neutered and given their first vaccinations, and are of uncertain origins. Abby, the brown and white one, is tall and thin while her brother, Jed, is stocky with short legs, indicating there could be basset hound in his background. Though it would be great if they got adopted together, they seem quite adaptable and will certainly adjust to their new family, whether together or separately. If you have room in your home and heart for a puppy (or two!), please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make arrangements for you to meet Jed and Abby. Spring is a great time to bring home a pup!
