Pet of the Week – Everest and Reese
Everest (ID: A006275) is a sweet pup looking for an adopter who understands him. This 4-year-old is about 45 pounds. He can be timid in new situations, but shows his playful side when he warms up. He enjoys attention and being petted. He sometimes pulls on a leash, but is easy to walk once he gets going. Everest doesn’t like to share his things, so an adults-only home without other pets would be ideal. He also makes his own fun when bored, but crating him when he’s alone would help. Everest did test positive for heartworms, but his treatment will be sponsored upon adoption. If you’d like to meet him, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today!
Looking for an active companion? Reese (ID: A006787) may be your girl! This 8-year-old is about 65 pounds. Her ideal home would be one where she can get lots of playtime, as well as long walks. She’ll need someone who can handle her strength, as she tends to pull. She can be a little too exuberant, but she’s learning not to jump. Reese sits on command, takes treats gently and can even catch them in the air! She is outspoken about what she wants — and she always wants treats. She previously lived in a home, where she was reported to be house-trained and to ride well in the car. She participates in shelter playgroups with other dogs her size, but she may do best without cats or small dogs. If Reese sounds like a good fit for you, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet her!
