Adoptable & Adorable: Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Petey

This handsome guy is about 5 years old and weighs 67 pounds. Make an appointment to meet him at Animal Friends.


Breed: Boxer Mix| Sex: Male
Age: 6 years | Weight: 66.5 pounds
Arrived: Aug. 29, 2020

Petey came to Animal Friends through a transfer with one of our partner organizations. He can be a little hesitant with some handling and would do well with a family that would give him the time to adjust and become comfortable. He would also need a family that would be willing to work with him on training, to help him become the best version of himself. A family with previous dog experience would be helpful. Petey would also like to be the only dog in the home, so that he can have all of your love. We would recommend Petey go home to a family with children at least 13-years-old. Petey is also very active and would do well with lots of physical activity. He is obsessed with tennis balls and will play all day with you, if you want!

Each of our dogs has received a thorough medical examination, is current on all appropriate vaccinations (including rabies) and has been microchipped and spayed or neutered.

Animal Friends is open for adoptions by appointment only, please email our Adoption team at to set up a time to visit.

Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our dogs in person. A typical adoption can take up to an hour. Please visit at least one hour before closing if you plan to adopt that day.
