Meet Dolly!


Lately, at The Humane Society of Kent County MD, visitors have been greeted by the pitter-patter of little paws. The shelter had five American Staffordshire Terrier puppies who have now all been adopted. We are hoping that their mother, 3-year-old Dolly, will have an equally short stay at the shelter. This loving pup has beautiful caramel eyes and tan fur.

Dolly came to HSKC very pregnant and gave birth a few days after arriving. Dolly has since been spayed, so she will never have to birth another litter again and is now at a healthy weight!!  While she was a loving and nurturing mother to her puppies, it is time for her to find a home of her own.

Despite everything that Dolly has been through, she remains a playful dog at heart. She loves giving kisses and running around. Dolly craves human attention and is very eager to please. She would make a wonderful family dog. Dolly would love to be in a home with children she could romp around with. Nothing makes her happier than being surrounded by people. Due to a lack of proper socialization, Dolly would do best as an only dog but does not seem to mind cats.

If you are considering rescuing a dog, please come meet Dolly at The Humane Society of Kent County MD today or call HSKC at (410) 778-3648.
