Danke (pronounced don-ka) is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She’s great with kids, loves people and is outgoing. Her breed is best guess, possibly some Boxer. She is getting along well with her kennel mate, Wilbur. She has 4 white ‘socks’! You can come and visit her if you like, or take her for a walk, while she waits for her permanent home.
Besides standard shots, dogs are de-wormed, vaccinated for bordetella, heartworm tested, and microchipped!
