She's been on many walks, and has been great in the car and walks nicely on the leash. Here's what one volunteer says about her: "Despacito was so excited to be outside without rain. she couldn’t decide if she wanted to play or cuddle. Sometimes she tried both! She loooves scritches and will leannnn into for maximum scritch effect." Come visit her!!

Did you know the fastest way to warm up an engine is by driving? When temperatures drop, it's tempting to let your car idle for several minutes to warm up. However, idling for extended periods of time only wastes fuel and generates unnecessary emissions.💨
