What APA! says about Drumstick:

  • Drumstick is attending a group class on Saturdays and has wonderful volunteers working with him during the week.
  • He is quickly learning all of his basic commands, as well as how to walk nicely on a leash. Drumstick has a love of people, affection and fun!

Why APA! says he deserves your love:

  • Drumstick is a long-stay shelter dog. He arrived at the city shelter as a stray on Thanksgiving 2012, hence the yummy name.
