My name is Megan, and I am sweet, easygoing, and insanely adorable! History I was surrendered to a high-kill shelter in Kentucky along with another senior dog– my people said they couldn’t take care of us anymore. He was named Charlie, and I was named Manson, which seemed to make everyone around us sad. We went to different rescues, so we’re both safe, but it was very sad to be given away and also to lose my best buddy. I was renamed Megan, which I think is lovely, and as I know my new name now very well, I want to keep it please! Personality I’m an incredibly sweet girl—friendly, easygoing, relaxed, and adorable. I have some good energy and feistiness too, which I am told…
