WHMP-Dakin Heavy Petting Pet Of The Week

Hannah is a 5 year old spayed female purebread Pug available for adoption at the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society in Springfield.

Suggested kids age range: 13 and up, may go lower dependent on meet. Dogs: Possible, can be fearful meeting some dogs. Cats: Possible, lived with cats in previous home. Exercise: Low

Are you looking for a laid back companion? I’m a low key girl who is mellow about the world around me. I enjoy meeting all sorts of friendly folks and getting gentle pets and attention. I was house trained in my previous home and even lived with cats. My previous family also said I ride well in the car.  My favorite toys are chewies.  I enjoy going for leisurely strolls too.  I did live with other dogs in my previous home, but I am a bit nervous meeting new dogs. A very quiet dog who isn’t too pushy might be ok for me. If you’d like to meet me, ask any Dakin staff person at the adoption center in Springfield to bring me right on out. I know I’d love to meet you!
