Clara is a shy 2-year-old dog who tries her best to be cooperative and social. Though it may take her awhile to warm up, she is polite and gentle when she does. Clara will do best in a kind home with patient owners to help her regain her self-confidence. She seems to like other dogs and may even prefer to be a second dog.
Adoption fees for dogs and puppies typically range from $100-$175, which includes a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, heartworm test and deworming.
Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Vet Hospital and a free full day of camp at Camp Bow Wow.
