Pet of the Week: Dave

Delightful Dave is our Pet of the Week!

This handsome boy is a cuddly couch potato! He’s also very smart, and already knows how to “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “shake.” What’s more, Dave is always willing to learn when treats are involved!

This young pittie mix can be a little nervous with strangers, but with some patience (and treats), he warms up quickly. Dave would do best in an adults-only home, and with a family who can be consistent with his training while he learns to share. Dave also likes to chase small critters, so he shouldn’t be in a home with small animals. He is very playful though, and respectful with dogs his size – he would love a big dog friend!

Dave still needs to learn how to share his favorite things and know that it’s okay to give up something – especially when he gets something better in return! His adoption will include a conversation with his caregivers to discuss ways to help Dave be successful in his new home and when going out and about with his new family.

Dave has a “Rambunctious Red” personality, meaning he is a spirited dog with a fun-loving personality. He is still working on his manners and would do best with owners willing to work with him to help him become the best dog he can be. Dave can be bribed with treats most times.

Like all dogs and cats adopted from RASKC, Dave is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee includes a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. You can find out more about Dave at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet, or come down to the Pet Adoption Center in Kent to meet this wonderful boy in person!
