Meet Suzie, our pet of the week and learn how you can snuggle some puppies this Saturday!

Mass Appeal

Suzie is a 6 year old English Setter mix. Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society introduces us to this sweet dog, and tells us how we can help Dakin by playing with some puppies on Saturday!

Suzie is a Dixie Dog who is newly-arrived in the northeast!  She takes other dogs on a case-by-case basis, so if you have a dog, you should bring them to Dakin in Springfield to meet Suzie before deciding whether or not to welcome her into your family.  We don’t know her history with cats but can check that.  Suzie would be a terrific first dog for someone unfamiliar with having a dog for a pet.  She has a calm spirit and an easy-going personality (big plus…she’ll be a fabulous walking buddy for you).  Come meet her in Springfield.
