Livingston County Animal Shelter Adoption of the Week: Tango, Lucy, and Peach

Barknado. Enough said. Against all logic and laws of nature, these dogs are still up for adoption.

Featuring: Tango, Lucy, and newcomer, Peach

Tango: This sweet and goofy one-year old boy thinks he is a lapdog but in reality, weighs in at 78 pounds. Tango likes to play outside, always finding some limb to carry around and chew on, but will crash for a good nap after some exercise. He is housetrained and enjoys kids. Tango will need someone who has experience with large dogs. He would benefit greatly from training as he still needs some work with leash walking and getting comfortable with new people. Tango is not crazy about being in a kennel and has loved hanging out in the office with staff.

Lucy: This sweetheart can be described as playful, fun, easy going, and friendly to everyone she meets. Lucy would make a great family dog and has quite a zest for life. She loves getting new toys but is not much into sharing them with other dogs. For this reason, she would be best in a home with no other dogs. She does, however, enjoy playing with other dogs at doggie day care and at the park. Lucy knows basic commands and has good manners. She enjoys walks and is leash trained.

Peach: Peach is the newest lovebug on the scene. She is 4-years old, is very affectionate, has wonderful manners (in the car and at the vet), and has a very laid-back personality. She is not a barker and is housetrained. She is the easiest dog to be around! Peach has cruciate surgery scheduled for mid-May. The best home for her would be a quieter place (for recovery) with little to no steps, and no cats or small children. Someone working from home would be a great fit. We are looking for a foster-to-adopt for Peach to help her through recovery. Please call the shelter to learn more about Peach.

Who can stand in the path of the mighty Barknado and not fall in love?
