Barks and growls at them, not a good sign… Good with kids? Yes! Background: I come all the way from KY, where I was originally in a high-kill, very crowded shelter, and it’s a pretty amazing thing that I am alive right now. The shelter needed to make some space, so called their veterinarian to come and put to sleep those of us who had been there for a little while, but when the vet met me, she just couldn’t do it. I was too sweet, she thought, and far too friendly. So she called…
