Meet our May pet of the month Reese. Reese was born to a family in Kenosha, Wisconsin and had 7 litter mates. She went to live with her forever family when she was just 8 weeks old.
When Reese arrived, her new mother noticed she was the same color as the Reese's peanut butter cup she was eating, hence the name.
Reese is very friendly and loves all animals and people. She was especially fascinated by the birds at Ambrosia. Reese's favorite things to do in Key West are hanging out on Duval Street and soaking up all the attention from folks passing by. She really enjoyed relaxing on her own private deck at Ambrosia.
Reese gives Ambrosia two paws up and will definitely return!
Per Reese a donation has been made to the Wheaton Terrier Rescue Organization.
