Adopt Me! Dog Houston Could Play Fetch Forever
The person who adopts this energetic pup will have to stop at the pet store on the way home to pick up some tennis balls. "You can throw balls at him forever and ever," says Donna Esposito, co-chair of dog programs at the Danbury Animal Welfare Society in Bethel, Conn. "After 20 or 30 minutes in the yard, he likes to cuddle up with you on the couch."
The 50-lb. "blonde man" loves the great outdoors. "He would be great with a family that likes to hike," Esposito adds. "We think he would probably be good with older kids only because of his size."
Rescued from a kill shelter in October, Houston, who is approximately 4-years-old, would prefer to be the only pet in the household because, Esposito says, "he likes all of the doggie attention." So much so that the group made him an official greeter at the Making a Difference fundraiser ball last month. "He was the perfect gentleman," adds community outreach coordinator Cathy Lent.
The Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. Founded in 1974, the group aims to end pet overpopulation through education. You can read more about Houston on their website or call (203)744-DAWS for more information.
