Pasco County Pet of the Week Dec. 13

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on December 13, 2021

Avery (ID: 48492361) is full of personality! She’s enthusiastic about everything life has to offer. This 5-year-old, 60-pound girl loves to be petted and snuggle with her human. She is wild about her rope toy, shaking and tossing it around. She even likes to play soccer! Avery is attentive, especially when food is involved, and takes treats gently. She also sits and shakes on command. Although she loves people, she would do best as an only dog. If you’d like to get to know Avery, make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services to meet her.

Ernie (ID: 48505121) is a bundle of energy! This 1-year-old weighs about 75 pounds and needs someone who can handle his size and strength. An active home where he can get lots of exercise, training and attention would be ideal. Ernie enjoys playing with other dogs, preferring those who have a rough and rowdy style like he does. He loves a good game of chase! He has lived with children and cats and was reported to be good with both. Ernie is attentive and knows the sit and down commands. He is affectionate and loves to give kisses, but could use some work on chewing and being mouthy. After all, he is still a young pup and needs to be taught what is expected of him. Up for the challenge? Make an appointment with Pasco County Animal Services today to meet Ernie!
