Pet of the Week – Choco and Halo

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on February 28, 2023

Choco (ID: A000121) is a loverboy! This 2-year-old weighs about 75 pounds. He is so sweet, gentle and calm outside of his kennel. He thinks he’s a lap dog! He likes nothing better than being with his person. Choco is very attentive, especially when food is involved. He sits on command and takes treats gently. He also walks well on a leash. Choco participates in playgroups with other dogs, preferring those he can roughhouse with. However, he can be reactive toward other dogs on a leash. He may also do best in a home with older children or adults only. If he sounds like a good fit for your home, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet him!

Halo (ID: A000101) is as sweet as she is beautiful! She is about 2 years old and 60 pounds. This friendly girl is so calm and mellow outside of her kennel. She walks well on a leash and takes treats softly. Halo participates in shelter playgroups, enjoying gentle friends who like to play tag with her. However, she’s had some personality conflicts at home with other pups and may be most successful with just one laidback male pup in the house or as an only princess with playdates. This young lady is looking for a home where she can get the right balance of exercise and relaxation. If you’d like to make a connection, schedule an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today!
