Pet of the Week – Egon and Snickers
One look into Egon’s (ID: A007258) soulful eyes, and you’re sure to fall in love! This 8-year-old is about 60 pounds. He can sometimes be wary of strangers, especially men. However, he has a sweet, soft temperament and gives small kisses once he makes a friend. Egon walks well on a leash, listens to corrections and takes treats gently. He is learning to make friends with other dogs and, so far, has done best with gentle females. He doesn’t always like to share, though, so he should be fed separately from any other pups in the home. He also would do best in a home without cats, or with a slow introduction. Egon did test positive for heartworms, and he could use a dental. Pasco County Animal Services medical staff would be happy to discuss treatment options with you. This handsome hound had a rough start to life, but he’s looking for someone to brighten his days. If that’s you, make an appointment today to meet him!
Snickers (ID: A011146) is as sweet as his name suggests! This 7-year-old is nearly 17 pounds and has gorgeous silver fur and stunning green eyes. He is friendly and enjoys being petted. He can even be picked up and carried, though it’s not his favorite thing. Snickers previously lived with other cats and dogs and did well with both. Make an appointment today with Pasco County Animal Services to meet him, and you won’t regret it!
