*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*FEATURED ADOPTABLE DOG*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Meet "Sarina," a young, female Boston Terrier/ Boxer mix. Having been found dirty, underweight and with overgrown nails, it appears that "Sarina" has not been well-cared for in some time . Despite this, she is a wiggly, outgoing girl who is looking for a home to call her own. "Sarina" would do best as the only dog. Please contact the Westfield Shelter to meet this great girl!
