Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Tux
This dapper dude loves car rides and long walks in the woods. Meet him at Animal Friends.
This dapper dude arrived at Animal Friends as a transfer from another shelter. Shortly after, he was treated for heartworm and now, Tux is ready to start his new life. He loves car rides and immersing himself in nature. Tux is always down for a nice, long walk through the woods where he can explore every little nook and cranky in sight! While residing with us, our staff and volunteers are teaching Tux leash manners and basic behaviors to help shape him into a well-rounded boy. He enjoys playing with toys and doing sniff enrichment, and romping around in our fenced in grassy areas! Tux is an energetic dog would benefit from frequent physical and mental exercise. Tux is best suited for a family with children at least 13 years old.
Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our animals 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.
