The Edge Pet of The Week 5/10


ID# A1826190 – Scooter, is a 2 year-old, White, American, Pit Bull Terrier mix. Scooter is a special dog looking for a special someone. His ability to hear is likely compromised, but his nose and eyes are sharp as ever. Scooter loves to explore, and is also practicing on matching his pace with a front ring harness with whomever is walking him. He loves treat games and puzzle toys. If there are any other dogs in the home, it would be best for Scooter to meet them first. Scooter’s wish is to have a favorite human to spend time with. If you would like to meet this handsome boy, he is at the Westside shelter. 

ID# A1825229 – Jax is a 1 year old, Brindle, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. The next best thing to a puppy is Jax. He is only 1 year old after all – so young and a puppy at heart. He has lots of energy to share with you. Jax is a fun energetic kid that loves toys, he also enjoys playing fetch for as long as possible and has been knows to carry a toy with him all the way from this kennel to the play yard. Jax needs an owner who would be willing to continue with guidance in appropriate training. If you would like the opportunity to meet this fun going, handsome boy, go to the Westside shelter to visit him.
