Dog of the Month

Keon August Dog of the MonthWe are pleased to introduce you to our August Dog of the Month, Keon. He is a very handsome Rottweiler who loves his weekly visits to Central Bark. He has so many best friends including Gracie, Maddie, and Skipper but he also makes time to give some snuggles to his Playgroup Leaders throughout the day. He started as such a shy pup but has really come out of his shell with all his friends and is a happy go lucky fellow. He has such a sweet personality that you can’t help but smile and be happy around him. Thanks for brightening our day and enjoy your month Keon!
