Pet of the Week – Leia and Puddles

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on December 2, 2022

Leia (ID: A000114) is a friendly, sweet girl with a beautiful blue brindle coat. This 6-year-old weighs about 65 pounds. She sits on command, takes treats gently and listens well to corrections. She sometimes pulls on a leash but is generally easy to walk. She is playful, curious, and loves to sniff and explore. Leia is learning to make friends with other dogs and may do best with a gentle male dog. However, she should have a home without cats. She also doesn’t like to share her food. If you can meet Leia’s needs and think she’d be a good fit for your home, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet her!

Puddles (ID: A001019) just wants to be loved! This 2-year-old weighs about 60 pounds. She enjoys being in your lap and giving kisses. This sweetheart is super friendly with both people and other dogs. She can be a little forward with them, so she may pair well with another dog that can tolerate her affection. Puddles knows the sit and down commands. She is very attentive, especially when goodies are involved, and takes treats gently. However, she doesn’t like to share her food. She can be mouthy, and she could also use some work on jumping. She sometimes pulls on a leash, but she calms down once she gets a chance to burn off some energy. Puddles is playful and would likely do best in an active home where she can get the exercise and attention she needs. Does she sound like a good fit for you? Make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services to meet her today!
