Pet of the Week: Reina

Pet o Week Reina.JPG

Hi, my name is Reina!

I was rescued almost a year ago from a high-kill shelter in Kentucky by the Kirkaldy family in Middlebury, and so far my training of them has gone well. They have learned not to leave any food out anywhere, even high up on kitchen counters; to lock the trash away when they leave the home; and not to leave any shoes where I can find them, take them into the back yard and chew them up. Sometimes they call me Chewbacca, because for a while I also gnawed on furniture.
