My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Deoxys is a handsome, sweet dog named after a Pokemon character known for being highly intelligent and having psychokinetic powers. We don’t think our Deoxys can move things with his mind, but we do think he’s a pretty smart guy! Deoxys shares his kennel with a pal that he came to PACC with and they do well together. When meeting other dogs in playgroup he was tolerant and independent- he’d like to meet any resident dogs before heading home to make sure it’s a good fit. Deoxys is looking for a home with a secure yard and a family who will welcome him indoors to spend as much time with them as possible. Ask about this perfect Pokemon today!!
