Is Phoebe spayed or neutered? yes
Is Phoebe up to date on vaccinations? yes
Why the animal is being rehomed: Phoebe has been a part of our family for 4 years, so it is really hard to do this. We had a child 2 years ago and phoebe doesnt get along with him. She is often a little aggressive towards him and we have tried everything to keep my son away from her but that doesnt fix the problem. We are afraid that she is not happy and we want the best for her.
