Pet of the Week: Wile E

Road Runner has nothing on our Pet of the Week – here’s Wile E!

This young boxer/pittie mix was brought in by an Animal Control Officer in early January. He’s an affectionate lovebug who would be thrilled to cuddle up with you at home after a good, long play session!

Wile E is full of energy – so he’s one of our “Rambunctious Red” pets. While Wile E is a spunky boy, he tends to calm down when the people around him stay calm. He does best when he has lots of exercise and something to keep his active mind busy.

Caregivers at the Pet Adoption Center have noticed that Wile E seems to do well with other large dogs. However, he can be a very pushy and rude dog and would do best with a slow introduction when meeting other dogs. Wile E would do best with a family who is willing to work with him and understand that he’s still a puppy and needs obedience training. Wile E is also very jumpy and mouthy so he would do best in a household with a dog-savvy owner that is prepared to work on his good doggy manners.

Wile E would do best in a home with older children. He still has some “stranger danger” in the shelter, so please be courteous of this when meeting him. As you can tell by his big smile, Wile E loves to play and run and would need someone who is going to be able to handle his very high energy!

Like all pets from RASKC, Wile E comes neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption includes a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice, and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since he is a Pet of the Week, Wile E’s adoption fee has been waived! However, please note that a pet license is a requirement and therefore a fee may be applied. This helps Wile E’s safe return home should he become lost, and comes with additional benefits such as Vacation Pet Alert, Free Ride Home, and more!
