The Edge Pet of The Week 4/5


ID# A1825411 – Griswald, is a 4 year-old, Black, Leonberger mix. Griswald is a special boy who has come a long way and is hoping to find a home that will accept him as he is. He came in with a dislocated spine, but that did not stop him from learning to live with it and making the best of his situation. Griswald enjoys his walks and that is during the time, he needs to use his “cart” to help him along. He would prefer to be an only dog to have all your cuddles and snuggles to himself. To find out more about Griswald, go to the Eastside shelter and meet him. 

ID# A1826036 – Sweetpea is a 1 year old, White, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Are you looking for a buddy to relax and chill with? Sweetpea might be the dog for you. She is shy at first, but very sweet after she warms up, she also walks good on a leash. Sweetpea seems to be OK with other dogs, but if you do have a doggy housemate for her to meet, it would be best to introduce her first. Sweetpea currently lives at the Westside shelter and is patiently waiting to find her forever home.
