Pet of the Week – Barbara and Colby

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on October 11, 2022

Colby (ID: A000462) is the cutest guy! This 2-year-old is about 60 pounds. He loves to play with his toys and carry them around. He previously lived in a home, where he was reported to be house-trained and ride well in the car. He knows the sit, shake, stay and come commands, and he takes treats gently. However, he could use some work on pulling. Although Colby is friendly with people, he may do best as an only pet or with a slow introduction and careful supervision. He can also be destructive when bored. If you can provide the exercise, mental stimulation and training Colby needs, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services to meet him today!

She may not be famous, but this Barbra Streisand (ID: A000021) is ready for a starring role in your life! She is about 3 years old and 50 pounds.

She may also do best in a home with adults only or older children. Barbra generally walks well on a leash, though she sometimes pulls. She could also use some work on jumping and being mouthy.
