Pasco County Pet of the Week

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on July 29, 2022

Bell (ID: 50214025) is as sweet as she is beautiful! She is about 3 years old and 55 pounds. This friendly, calm girl likes to be in your lap, get petted and give kisses. She participates in playgroup with other dogs, preferring those that are gentle like she is. She is generally easy to walk, though she sometimes pulls. Bell has been diagnosed with heartworms and hip dysplasia, and Pasco County Animal Services staff would be happy to discuss treatment or management options with you. If you’re looking for a loving, loyal companion, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet Bell!

Jax (ID: 49711619) is looking for a special home with someone who understands him. He is sweet, but nervous around people. It takes him a while to warm up, but when he realizes you are a friend, he will give tiny kisses. Jax does enjoy the company of other dogs, participating in playgroups at the shelter. He sits on command but could use some work on his leash manners, as he tends to pull. Jax tested positive for heartworms, but his treatment will be sponsored upon adoption. This 4-year-old weighs about 60 pounds. Want to see if you can make a connection? Schedule an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services to meet Jax today!
