Dog of the Month


We are pleased to introduce you to our July Dog of the Month, Evie. She has been coming to daycare since July of 2013. Evie is a Shepherd mix with such a big personality. Her family adopted her from a local German Shepherd Dog Rescue and boy did she hit the jackpot. She has a big sister husky named Elly who loves her lots and a great mom and dad. Evie loves all her visits at Central Bark Wauwatosa and in her eyes every pup is her BFF. She adores the pools and splashing around in summer is the best. We love ya Evie! Enjoy your month! Woof!
