Peaceable Kingdom

Thursday, January 9, 2014 by The Press in Local News

Virgil is an 11-year-old Jack Russell mix with a spunky and loving personality. He is used to home life so he would love to be back in a home and not spending his senior days at the shelter.

He's a super friendly boy who enjoys cuddling up next to you, going for walks and just hanging out. He is a big fan of squeaky toys.

He ended up at the shelter through no fault of his own and now he's looking to hop back into a warm, loving home!

Peaceable Kingdom is located at 1049 Macarthur Road. Contact the shelter at pk.dogadoptions@
