Adopted! Pet of the Week Dutch

Update: Dutch is now in his forever home, but don't forget about his furry friends up for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Meet our Pet of the Week Dutch. He's a 7-year-old bloodhound who is up for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Here's a special message from Dutch:

"Hi, I'm Dutch - pleased to meet you! I'm a big boy with a big personality to match. I love the company of people and other dogs and am always a well-mannered boy. I have started to be a little silly in my kennel though. I will probably bark at you like I don't want you to say hello, but I assure you that I really do. Give me a yummy treat from my bucket and I'll be quiet very quickly to make sure I get that treat! Ask to meet me outside of my kennel and you'll see my true personality. I'm an affection hog who LOVES a good hiney scratch! And I'm pretty smart too. I can sit, stay, lay down, come and even give you my paw (that one's my favorite!) I also like to be active. Whether it's putting my nose to the ground and smelling everything in my path, or playing a game of fetch, I'm happy to be moving. By the way, tennis balls are my favorite - boy do I love to chase after them! So what do you think? Could you give this good ol' boy a forever home?"
