Pet of the Week – Pastrami and Flounder

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on August 22, 2023

Pastrami - Pet of the Week

Pastrami (ID: A008764) is in the market for someone who understands him. This 7-year-old weighs about 70 pounds. He is playful, walks well on a leash, and takes treats gently. His finder reported he also rode well in the car. Although he likes people, he could use some work on his manners, as he is still figuring out how to properly greet friends. It may take him a bit to warm up to men, so be sure to let him set the pace and terms. Pastrami would do best as an only pet with an experienced adopter. With training and patience, he’s sure to become the best boy! Make an appointment today with Pasco County Animal Services if you can provide the right home for Pastrami.

Flounder Pet of the Week

Flounder (ID: A012377) is a handsome guy looking for his perfect match. This 2-year-old weighs about 60 pounds, though he could stand to gain a few more. He previously lived with another dog and a cat. He can take time to warm up to people and likes to make friends at his own pace, but he is food motivated and open to bribes. He knows the sit, down and crawl commands, and he is house-trained. Flounder’s ideal home would be predictable, quiet, and with people who are all old enough to understand that he can be unsure in new situations and with new people. He may be most successful without very young children for this reason. If he sounds like a fit for you, ask to see him at Pasco County Animal Services today!
