Petey is what every dog should be: loyal, loving, and everyone’s best friend. His heart is as big as his handsome blocky head, and all he asks for in return for a lifetime of loyalty is an occasional hug.
As a pup, Petey arrived at a firehouse, shut down and wounded physically and emotionally with an unknown, but clearly sad history. One of the firemen took him home and for 5 years Petey knew the love of a family. He lived with another dog and several children, always there for his family when they needed him. Due to personal problems his family could no longer keep him, and he was brought to Adopt-A-Dog in hopes that we could find him a new family to love.
Petey would do best in a home as an only pet, with older children, in a family that will adore him. He loves long walks, naps on the couch, and hugging his people with a big doofy grin on his face.
This low maintenance mush deserves another chance for love.
