Pasco — Sawyer

Sawyer is a sweet and fun loving dog of undetermined age and breed. Shelter volunteers think, because of his mannerisms, he’s a puppy. He can be destructive when left alone and tends to jump and use his mouth when meeting new people. A crate, something to keep his mind occupied, lots of exercise and some obedience training would be beneficial. He’s friendly and playful, but is best suited for a home without young children. For more information or to meet him, call Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.

Sawyer is friendly, but he needs a lot of attention and training to help him mature.
