Featured Pet

Stewie is a happy little boy, and a wonderful companion. He weighs about 22 lbs. He loves to romp in the fenced yard with the other dogs in his foster home. Being a terrier he is active, and will chase cats so a home without cats is best. When BYC first took in Stewie and tested him we discovered he had heartworm. He was treated over a course of several months, and has been tested and is free of heartworm. He has no ill effects but it is imperative he be kept on monthly HW preventative year-round. He would do best with older children. Stewie is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and ready to find his forever home ! Stewie's adoption fee is $200.00
