Plenty of Pets

Pablo is an energetic pup who needs an active home.

Pablo currently weighs 50 pounds, and is growing. He won’t be a year old until January.

He’s been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

He loves people, but needs help in learning not to jump up in greeting. He also loves toys and chewing, and sometimes gets shoes and chew toys confused.

Pablo will whine to let you know when he needs out. He loves walks, but needs to learn not to pull. He also loves swimming and going for drives.

There is a cat in his foster home, and he avoids her because she makes it known that she doesn’t want him nearby. He gets along with other dogs most of the time, but sometimes doesn’t want to share toys.

Because he jumps up to greet people, a home where children are3 at least 10- and dog savvy- would be best.

Pablo’s new family will have to commit to attending obedience classes with him.

If you’re interested in Pablo, contact Animal Rescue Coalition at or check out the adoption info and forms on the website.
