This week we met Natty the dog...

Here's some information on Natty from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Natty is a year old, 25 pound mixed breed girl. She is a very sweet girl who loves to play in the yard and loves to lay in laps when she's tired.

She's a little on the shy side so a more quiet home would be best. She would love another dog to play with and older kids would be good too. Natty is still trying to figure out how to walk on a leash but we know with time she'll get it so we prefer a home with a fenced in yard so that she can get out and walk and play.

Adopting a pet as a new family member is a major commitment and responsibility. The Humane Society of Ocean City is there to help you and your family succeed every step of the way. We provide training assistance by one of our certified dog instructors and quality veterinarian services by our award winning clinic."
