Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Meet Ms. Busy, a 3-year-old Boston/Bulldog weighing 28 pounds, who came to The Champaign County Animal Welfare League from a breeder who had retired her. She is a very affectionate girl who would enjoy someone rubbing her belly all day long. Ms. Busy is a walking pro on a leash. She does need a patient owner with house-training. Ms. Busy does fine with other dogs. She is spayed, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, current on all vaccinations and preventions.
