Meet Petey. The kind of guy everyone wants to invite to their party! He is social, expressive, playful, loves to mingle, and has a great sense of humor. Petey loves to be in the thick of things. Whether you are doing the dishes or watching TV - it doesn’t matter to Petey - he just loves to be with you!
Petey currently lives with a bunch of dogs and gets along with all of them. Petey also shares his foster home with a few cats, but so far, he just ignores them. Petey has excellent recall. He can be anywhere and will come when called. He has developed good potty habits. When Petey first arrived at his foster home, he was very confused and did mark in his new surroundings.. It took his foster mom correcting him, but Petey soon figured it out.
Petey is a medium sized hound mix and is fully grown. We don't know Petey's exact age but we think he is less than 2 years old, so he is the perfect age. Young enough to still act like a puppy, but mature enough to be easily trained. Training Petey is easy because he is very smart and wants to learn. Petey will do best with an experienced family who can continue with his overall training.
Petey came to us with stitches in his ear because he was attacked by another dog at the pound we pulled him from. He also had a puncture wound in his neck. All is healing well, but he is understandably agitated to have people touch him in those areas. His foster mom is working to desensitize him, but at this time we are still recommending a home with no children under 12 years old.
Petey's adoption fee of $385 includes: Vet exams, 4DX heartworm combo test, DAPP-CV (distemper combo) vaccination, Rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, routine deworming, microchip and neuter.
