Pasco — Melody

Melody is a 4-year-old, 45-pound female dog of unknown breed. She’s a spunky girl looking for someone who can match her energy. She is sweet, affectionate, loving and playful. She tends to be a bit rough and needs work on not being mouthy. Melody is a quick learner and already sits and shakes on command. An active home where she gets a lot of exercise would be ideal. For more information, call Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.
