found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi! My name is Pilgrim and I'm a very smart, happy, loving dog. I'm so smart that I actually rescued myself! I saw some nice people trying to catch a stray dog. I was a stray, too, and didn’t want to spend one more scary minute alone on the streets, looking for someone to help me. I saw my opportunity to get rescued, so I jumped into their car. Since I was an unexpected rescue, PFL had to put me up in a boarding kennel, which is where I am now, hoping like crazy that someone will offer to foster me or want to adopt me.
It was a good thing that PFL let me rescue myself that day because I tested positive for heartworm. I was a sick boy but the nice people fixed me up and now I’m healthy and heartworm negative. I also received my vaccinations and got neutered, so I’m ready for my forever home now.
I love to play and I love toys! I’m usually happy just to play with my toys by myself, as long as a person is petting me or even is just in the room with me. I love people and I love companionship. I have a lot of stuffed animals and my very own bed – I like soft, cushy things. I also like to take walks and I have had lots of training. I understand “stay,” “sit” and “no” and I listen well. I am a people pleaser and my walkers say I walk wonderfully on leash - such a good boy!
I think I’m about 2 years old and I weigh 65 pounds. I'm pretty strong, so a home without small children would be best for me. I'm afraid I would knock them down in all my excitement and I don't want to hurt a fly. I'm a gentle soul. I also need to be in a home in which I am the only pet. No other dogs or cats, please. I’ve been told that I’m very handsome and can look quite dignified, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. You just have to give me a chance! I’m a great best friend and can’t wait to meet my forever family or person. My adoption fee is $75.
