Pet of the Week – December and Pesto

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on February 8, 2023

December Pet of the Week

December (ID: A004339) is a shy, but sweet girl looking for a soft place to land. She is about 3 years old and 50 pounds. She can be wary of strangers and a little unsure of new situations. Give her time to warm up and she’ll be in your lap, giving kisses and enjoying butt scratches. However, she would rather sniff and explore than snuggle. December participates in playgroups with other dogs, preferring those that are gentle like she is. She sometimes pulls on a leash but is generally easy to walk. If you can provide the patience and understanding December needs, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet her.

Pesto Pet of the Week

Pesto (ID: A003512) is such a good girl! This 3-year-old weighs about 50 pounds. She already knows the sit, down, shake, stay and come commands. She also walks well on a leash and takes treats gently. She keeps her kennel clean, so she may be easily house-trained. Pesto participates in playgroups with other dogs, preferring those that are gentle like she is. She’s not much of a snuggler, but that doesn’t mean she’s not sweet! Pesto did test positive for heartworms, and Pasco County Animal Services staff would be happy to discuss treatment options with you. Make an appointment today with Pasco County Animal Services to meet her, and you won’t regret it!
