Meet Pumpkin the Shih Tzu, our Pet of the Week!

Mass Appeal

Pumpkin is a well-trained, 13 year old male Shih Tzu looking for his new home. He was brought to Dakin because his person was moving to a place that didn’t allow pets.  He is a gentle dog who has lived with kids before and was good with them, but he needs to have his space when he’s had enough play time.  

Pumpkin has not lived with other dogs or cats before.  He really enjoys stuffed animal toys.  Pumpkin has ongoing ear issues and will need care for that.  His person said his best traits are that he loves to play, and he’s a happy and friendly dog.  Come meet Pumpkin at Dakin’s Springfield Adoption Center.
