Critter Chronicles

Critter Chronicles: Muffin



Muffin has a sad story to tell. Her owner passed away and there was no one to care for her. She was taken to the Avon Animal Hospital to be euthanized, but realizing she was a wonderful dog, the hospital called the shelter. Friendship stepped in and saved Muffin. She has a congenital deformity to her back legs, but it doesn’t cause her pain. It looks a little strange when she walks, but it doesn’t cause her to miss a beat. She loves to romp and play with the best of them. She was well taken care of and is very gentle. She would love to celebrate being saved by being adopted into a new home with you! She’s just a delight! Muffin is nervous around other dogs. It would be best if she were an only pet. If you have a docile dog, you can bring it to the shelter and see how they would get along with each other.
