Adoptable Friend of the Week: Cayuga

Posted on October 28, 2014 9:09 am by Raela Gore

My name is Cayuga, and I’m looking for my furever home.  I’m a 1-3 year old terrier mix and I weigh about 25 pounds.  I love to talk, and I’ll let you know when I want to be petted.  I could still use a little work on my leash walking skills, but I’m a very good boy.  I’m still adjusting to the shelter, and I’m ready to find my very own family.  Come meet me, your new best friend, at the White County Animal Shelter.
