2/22/13: Dovie is very sweet and loving! She is house trained and we are working on walking on a leash. She loves to be near you whether inside or out. She is happiest when getting a neck rub and will just lean into you for loving. Dovie is a great dog and would make a wonderful addition to any family.

BDRA require an additional one hundred dollar ($100.00) spay/neuter deposit for un-altered dogs. This deposit is refundable upon BDRA receiving proof of spay / neuter and rabies vaccination. This includes Dovie.

If you are interested in adopting Dovie, please fill out our
