Pet of the Week – Birch and Mae Lynn

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on April 6, 2023

Birch (ID: A005843) is a bouncy, energetic senior pup with the cutest underbite and snaggletooth! He enjoys the company of other dogs, loving a game of chase with his pup friends. He is crate and potty trained, and can entertain himself all day with toys. This 8-year-old is a convenient medium size at about 40 pounds and has done well in a home with both cats and other dogs. Birch is also reportedly an excellent car rider! While Birch has many endearing qualities and will make a delightful member of the family, he finds himself a little down in the dumps to spend his golden years at the shelter. He would very much appreciate a less hectic environment where he can have more opportunities to hang out with his dog and people friends. If you think you’re Birch’s forever, come to Pasco County Animal Services and ask to see him today! True love is just an adoption away.

Mae Lynn (ID: A006365) has no idea why she’s still in the shelter! This 5-year-old is about 70 pounds. She is friendly, sweet, and loves to cuddle in your lap. Some of her favorite activities are playing fetch, tossing her toys around, and splashing in the pool. She also participates in playgroups, doing best with other large dogs. Mae Lynn walks well on a leash; knows the sit, stay and come commands; and takes treats gently. Make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet her, and you’re sure to fall in love!
