Plex 0090

Beautiful, friendly and loving describes, 1 year old, large, Shepherd-mix, Plex. She’s sweet but unsure of the world because she has lived on a chain for her whole life. She’d love a family with no other animals so she can be spoiled!  Given love, attention, plenty of exercise, preferably in a yard, inclusion in activities, and a forever home, Plex, ID No. 0090, will make a great pet. Come meet her at the Shelter.
