RAFFERTY RESCUE PET OF THE WEEK: Melissa!

Why hello there! My name is Melissa and it is so lovely to meet you. I am a new addition to the adoptable dog crew at Providence Animal Center, in Media, after making the journey from an overcrowded shelter in Georgia. That’s right – I’m a genuine southern belle who is ready to become part of your family!

I am approximately 2 years old and 61 pounds. Some may say that they couldn’t handle a dog my size, but I walk very well on the leash and am quite gentle with everyone I meet! Be prepared for a lap dog because I’m a professional. I love receiving and giving out love more than anything. I will step into your lap for some neck scratches (my favorite), and I’ll always be sure to thank you with a kiss! I love to lounge in a comfortable doggy bed, and am sure to be one lucky family’s couch potato companion. While I may have to be lured into the car with baby talk, I don’t mind it so much once I’m inside with my people! Heh.

If you’re interested in adding me to your family, be sure to walk in to Providence Animal Center soon. I just can’t wait!

Tail wags and sloppy kisses,

Melissa
