Abby’s big brown eyes are sure to melt your heart and her playful spirit will make you smile! At the age of 5, Abby loves to socialize with her human friends, go for walks, and learn cool new tricks. This little peanut has so much love to give that she would prefer a home where she is the only dog. If you’re ready to meet Abby, stop by the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus today!
