Meet Abbey Newbery! Abbey is a lab mix who was adopted by David and Dee Newbery as a foster! She had been placed with the Newbery family during the 2020 Emergency Foster Placement initiative that happened as a result of COVID-19 in April of 2020 and less than a month later, they decided that Abbey needed to be a full-time Newbery! She was adopted in May of 2020 and is working on her tricks – such as sit. She is a sweet girl and her parents are excited to get to feature her as the 2021 Paws in the Park Spokespet!
