Jax (Pasco)

Jax is a 4-year-old male dog of unknown breed. He is looking for a home with someone who understands him. He is a sweet guy but very nervous around people. Once he warms up to you, you’ll be getting sloppy kisses. Jax participates in play groups and appreciates the company of other dogs. He sits on command but could use some work on leash manners. Jax tested positive for heartworms, but his treatment will be sponsored upon adoption. For more information, call Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.

Elvis (Pinellas)

Elvis is a 4-year-old male hound dog. He is sweet, playful and loves other large dogs and all people. Like most hounds, he tends to be vocal. After two weeks of training, Elvis is learning what it is like to be a house dog. He is crate-trained and working on leash manners. A home with a large fenced yard without cats or small dogs would be ideal. For more information, fill out an application at fluffanimalrescue.org.
