The Urban Mutt is proud to announce that we are now able to serve our customers in 2 locations! Our second location is in La Grange. We are very excited to join the community and offer our services and products to the people in the area. We will probably wait until the latter part of May to do an “Official” Grand Opening, but in the meantime, we are definitely up and running. Our website will soon be updated with the new location information but for now here it is:

Meet the newest addition to The Urban Mutt Family!

Posted by Cynthia on Thursday, August 19th, 2010 at 3:54 pm.

I’d like to introduce you to Foxy……or Foxy Mamma as I like to call her. We believe Foxy is a Chihuahua/Corgi Mix and about 6 months old. She is a great little dog, very hyper and playful. Best of all, the other 3 dogs love her! She took to them (and they to her) within a day. However, Peanut is her favorite.

So now we are up to 4 mutts. They are all great and I don’t think I could give any of them up!! Although ask me that when I’m outside cleaning up all the poop. Thank goodness for our doggie disposal system:)
