Description of service

I went to the veterinarins office because they have a pound beside it.

I went there looking for a pet to adopt. I found a mixed breed dog. She was black and had a few white spots. She was very friendly and playful. I decided to pick her.

The adoption fee, the shots and worming and flea medicine and a bath came to a total of 45.00.

Review of Service

The service was good. They were really busy and slow. I was there a while, but it was worth it. She was a great dog to have. She seemed so greatful to be chosen. She was playful, happy and loved the family. I bought her some toys, bed, food. I surprised everyone when they came home. We named her pepper. She made a wonderful addition to the family.


I would advice people to check out the pounds. Look for a pet that would best suit your family. Look around and find that special pet, that needs a home. They will be so greatful you did. Buy food, food bowls, toys, and a bed. Decide do you want a pet inside or outside?What kind of pet do you want? Do you want something small or big? You want a pet based on your needs and wants. They are alot of responsibility. Think about all your options and decide. Do you have children? Pick something children friendly. Are you around alot of people?

You want something people friendly. Decide what you want, then go looking.
