Indiana Dog thinks she’s a little dog and it’s too cute
Allow us to introduce you to this week pet of the week of the Vanderburgh Humane Society. Meet Melody.
Meet Melody! Melody, 3, is so beautiful and sweet, we can’t believe she’s been with us for over two months! She loves back scratches and tummy rubs, and we can 100% guarantee she’ll be a cuddly couch potato in her new home. We must warn you that she underestimates her weight – she is a reasonably sized companion dog at heart. We don’t know Melody’s full story, but we think she might be open to making some animal friends. She’s already spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines, so if it’s love at first sight, she’ll be ready to go home!
