Can you give Bonita her forever home?

Can you give Bonita her forever home?

Hello…my name is Bonita…I think my old family named me that because I am a ‘good’ girl…but they turned me into the shelter anyway because they could not keep me any longer. Everybody says that I am beautiful…sweet, timid, a little shy, well behaved, patient and just a great girl!

I would love to be your new best friend if you give me the chance because I really don’t like it much in this noisy place. I do not like to use the bathroom inside, so I am patiently waiting to be taken outside to go.

I am 3 years old and weigh only 49 pounds, which makes me a really nice mid size dog. I am already spayed and micro chipped, so I am ready to go!

Would you come and meet me please? I am waiting in run 78 and my ID# is 557385.  All my shots are up to date and I’m heartworm tested negative! Will you please come by?

 

When calling the shelter about a cat or dog, please use THE ID NUMBER the names are oftentimes made up by volunteers. This beautiful pet and many others need a forever, loving home and are available for adoption from the Cobb County Animal Shelter, 1060 Al Bishop Drive Marietta, Georgia 30008, call (770) 499-4136 for more information.
