Meet our featured pet Georgetown!

Handsome Georgetown is a friendly, playful dude ready for fun! As he can get over-excited in play, he would benefit from some training to learn impulse control and polite behavior. He is high-energy and will enjoy living with an active family who can give him the exercise he needs.
