Pasco — Smith

Smith is a 10-year-old, mixed breed, male dog. He’s an active boy and is happiest when he’s carrying around his toys. He’s a great family dog because he’ll track you down to play with him. He likes to play fetch, go for long walks and snuggle with his humans. For more information, contact the SPCA Suncoast at 727-849-1048.

Hernando — Zoey

Zoey is a 10-month-old, bluemerle and white female Catahoula mix. She is very sweet, but active because she’s still a puppy.

For more information, contact Hernando County Animal Services at 352-796-5062.

Zoey is a very active and affectionate puppy.
