Plenty of Pets
Turbo and his senior companion are no longer able to be together, and he
Needs a forever home.
He’s a six-year-old Whippet/Staffordshire terrier mix who gets attached to people very quickly. He gets along well with other dogs and with children.
He loves to cuddle, give kisses, go for walks and runs, put his paw on your arm, and get doggie massages. He is obsessed with orange balls.
Turbo knows basic commands, is healthy, and up to date on vaccinations and flea//tick protection.
He needs a loving home where he will get lots of exercise.
He is an adoptable with the Halifax pawd of ElderDog.
