Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Klinger, a 10-month-old Hound Mix adopted from us a few months ago along with PJ. They were returned because they recently started to not get along with each other. Klinger is a very sweet boy and he loves kids! He gets along with most dogs here at the rescue. He has been neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $150.
