Speaking of Floyd... meet our new foster puppy!

In honor of FloydFest, we've named our new foster puppy... you guessed it, Floyd!

This sweet boy was left at Animal Control with his litter mates. They are now all in foster care through the Roanoke Valley SPCA and will be available for adoption in two weeks.

While we don't have any history on Floyd, we can already tell he'd make a great companion!

Stop by the shop to meet him in person!
