Pet Corner: Petey

Hampden County

Name: Petey
Location: Currently in foster care, call 413.781.4000 to make an appointment to meet him
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Male
Age: 3 years
Color: Light brown

Petey is a sweet boy who loves people, other dogs, even cats! This guy has a medical condition (epilepsy, which has produced seizures) that can be controlled by medication (which he accepts happily when it’s covered in spray cheese!) and since he’s been in his foster house, he hasn’t had a seizure. Our Animal Resource Counselors can fully explain his condition.

Petey loves being outside, laying in the sun, and he’s a champion cuddler. If you give him a squeak toy, he’ll be thrilled. Petey is very easy-going, he travels well, and he loves to interact with people.

Call Dakin at (413) 781-4000 to arrange a meeting with this sweet-natured boy.
