Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Stewart, a 3-year-old Lab found as a stray here in Champaign County. His stray hold is up and he is now searching for his forever home. Stewart is a very friendly boy! He loves to play and just be with people. He also gets along great with other dogs. He loves going for walks and he is great on a leash. Stewart does have a little bit of separation anxiety and we think that he would do best in a home with another dog to keep him company. Stewart has been neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $150. Come out and meet this sweet boy!
