About Pedro

Hey guys, my name is Pedro,  now known as Petie.  I am a tall lanky 4 year old boy, black/rust,  cropped and docked.  My leash manners would benefit greatly from an  obedience class.  I sit and down nicely for food.  I will do best  with hopefully a fenced in yard, a playmate, children 5’ and taller with no  cats please.  My dream is have a family to love me and hopefully a  4-legged sibling with a backyard to romp in.  
I was dumped at a shelter, but  I have learned to adjust to the crate and can now sleep the entire  night.  I love raw soup bones and all treats.  I am skinny right  now, but my foster mom has been steadily fixing that.
I have energy to burn and am  in no way a couch potato.  I am ready to rock and roll with a family that  loves me.  My foster mom says I am one sweet young man who just wants to  be loved.



My name is Petie and I have been on this list waaay toooo long. I am a loving sweet 4 year young black/tan cropped and docked dude, who wants nothing more than to be loved. I have gained lots of weight - no longer that scrawny lad.


I know commands and work great for food. I get along with my foster mom's girl; cats unknown and just love to fly around the yard. No children under 5’ as I might accidently knock them over.  


I was praying so hard for my forever home by the New Year. Alas, that did not  happen. I'm so worthy of a good home. Is there no one out there for me?

This Is My Story

Pedro found himself at the shelter and the shelter asked DAR&E to find him a wonderful new home.
