Barely Used Pets (dog)

Briggette is a female terrier mix. This sweet girl was born on June 6, 2018. Being still under a year, she definitely still has a lot of puppy in her. So she does need some reinforcement on potty training. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is a very sweet, outgoing girl who gets along very well with other dogs and even cats. She would make a wonderful family pet because she loves children. Please come out to Barely Used Pets to meet her!

We are selling the 2019 Champaign County Dog Tags.

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) announces Enzo as our pet of the week. Enzo is a 4-year-old English Bull Terrier who weighs 58 pounds. He came to the CCAWL as an owner surrender.

Enzo has been dewormed, heartworm tested negative and current on flea and heartworm prevention. An experienced Bull Terrier owner is required.
