PETEY NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!!
Name: PETEY Best Guess for Breed: Terrier Mix
Best Guess for Age: 1.5 years as of 6/8/17 SEX: Male
Approximate Weight: 45 - 50 lbs
Has Lived With: Other dogs
Currently Living at: Local DC Boarding Facility. Petey is looking for a foster or a forever home.
Special Considerations: Petey needs help working on polite leash manners when around other dogs.
My name is Petey and let me tell you- I’ve already had quite the life. I was born and raised on the streets of Puerto Rico until some wonderful rescuers saved me from long days roaming around and being very hungry. Since then, I have learned how to be a good boy and I've gotta tell ya- I REALLY like living in a home!
I got to travel on the plane all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone here will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with!
So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft white coat with some brown spots just on my face! I've also got big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I’m about 1.5 years old and 45 - 50 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing—but no matter how big I get I’ll always think of myself as a lap dog.
I do really well with other dogs - as long as I am given a proper introduction. We are not sure how I will interact with kids or cats yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know!
I’ve been daydreaming everyday about my new family, and I've decided I would love to go to a home with some folks that will take me on hikes, runs, and trips to the dog park to play with my canine friends. If my new family would take me to obedience classes so that I could use my smarts to learn tons of new tricks that would be amazing. If you think I might be the right dog for you, then please let my adoptions coordinator know - I do hope to hear from you soon!
Woofs and tail wags,
Like most shelter dogs, Petey may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.
