WHMP Dakin Heavy Petting Pet of the Week
Sunny 
Lhasa Apso mix
Spayed Female
1 year old
 
Sunny is a perfect name for me!  I’m a cute little girl who is a little bit shy at first but I love attention! I like to play once I’m comfortable, especially when you throw balls when we are outside in the yard. I love being around people and being pet and loved – I’m a cuddle-bug! I would also love to go to training classes so I can learn more tricks! I haven’t had much experience around cats or small children, but you can definitely ask a Dakin staff person for more information about me!  I will be available at the Leverett Adoption Center beginning today.
