Adoptable Pet of the Week


Hi future best friend, my name is Panda. I’m a two-year-old lab/pit mix with an adventurous side. I love anything that involves the outdoors—hiking, camping, running on the beach, bike rides… you name it, and I’ll be there by your side! After all that exercise, you can find me watching some late-night Animal Planet. I’ll be sure to save room on the couch for you. I’m a great listener and learn quickly! Need a buddy who’s already crate-trained and potty-trained? Say no more, I’m your lady. I’m great with dogs both big and small and even enjoy the company of our whiskery feline friends. I’d really love it if you came and met me at DAWG. Trust me: I’m a pretty loveable gal!
