Adoptable Dog of the Week-Petey

PetGuide logo

Fluffy, cuddly, and cute- what more could you possibly need? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Petey, a 1.5 years old Pomeranian and English Toy Spaniel mix from Thompson Falls, Montana. This incredibly sweet boy is neutered, up to date with his shots, housetrained, and good with older kids and other dogs.

When it comes to ruff starts, Petey’s definitely had one of the worst imaginable: this little guy was rescued from a dog meat market in South Korea. If it weren’t for the joint effort of the rescuers from the two countries, Petey’s tale would have had a grim ending. But now, he has the chance for his own fairytale ending, hopefully with a furever family to love him and pamper him.

As you might have guessed from that million dollar smile, Petey is a bona fide charmer. Despite his previous bad luck, this fluffy little pooch loves people and being in the center of the attention. The more cuddles and treats, the better! Of course, the same goes for kids, as this affectionate boy doesn’t discriminate when it comes to smooches and petting. However, as Petey grew in a place where he never had enough food to eat, he can be protective of his food bowl, so his rescuers wouldn’t recommend him for a household with young children.

Apart from his resource guarding, Petey is a well-mannered fella and he’s fully housetrained. With a patient, dedicated owner, this lovely boy might even learn a trick or two! Petey also gets along great with other dogs, as long as they have pawesome personalities as he does!

This adorable pooch is ready to go and live his best doggo life! If you want to be the person that makes all his canine dreams come true, contact Thompson River Animal Care Shelter (TRACS).
