Furry Team Member
Alley Beagle became a member of the doctor’s family while they were on a trip to Pennsylvania. She was running down the road next to their car covered in ticks and porcupine quills. When the doctors reached their destination, Alley continued up to greet them. They had her treated for her medical issues and she then became a permanent member of their family and the Chagrin Animal Clinic team. She offers tail wags and affection to anyone when needed.
