Dionne is truly the sweetest little hound mix puppy you will ever meet! She was found as a stray hiding behind a dumpster crying for someone to find her. She is very affectionate, playful and ready to learn. In the short time that she has been at the KHS she has already learned to sit! Dionne would be a great addition to any family and would love to find her furever home in time for the holidays. Come down to the shelter to meet this darling little soul, we are sure she will warm your heart just as fast as she did ours!
If you would like to adopt Dionne or any of the other “Friday Fur Balls” visit www.kingstonhumanesociety.ca or stop by Kingston Humane Society at 1 Bennington CRT.
