Melvin (formerly Virgil) is the sweetest lil’ pup ever! My boyfriend and I rescued him in November 2017. We went to the AWS in hopes of finding a new family member. We met Melvin first, and we fell in love. Melvin loves to cuddle, swim, and chase sticks! His bark sounds fierce but he’ll run right up and give you kisses all day long. Melvin also enjoys playing with his doggy cousins and neighborhood friends!  We are so lucky to have rescued Melvin!
