Pet of the week: Glory
KEARNEY,NEB. — Meet our Pet of the Week: Glory. Hi guys, my name is Glory! My 2 puppies and I were transferred to KAAS from another facility because we were out of time. I am a medium sized dog with so much love, an XL sized dog couldn't contain it. Sometimes I like to think I am a lap dog because cuddling and giving kisses is probably my favorite thing to do! My new home will have to be patient as I transition because I show signs that I have been abused, so I tend to cower at sudden movements. I am a very loving girl that gets along great with other dogs and cats and I would make the perfect addition to just about any home. If you are interested in meeting me, please stop into KAAS!
