Plenty of Pets

Trapper is a one-year-old German shepherd-Rottweiler mix who has been in the care of the SPCA since June.

He loves playing with other large dogs, playing fetch and getting attention. He’s a bouncy dog with lots of energy and would do best in a home with no small children or small animals. His new person should attend positive reinforcement obedience classes with him.

Trapper is neutered and waiting for his new family. Because he’s a long-term resident, his adoption fee has been reduced.

Trapper is available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. To learn more about adopting him, call  468-7877, check out the Facebook page or send a message through the website.
