Wiggle Worm (Pasco)

Wiggle Worm is a 5-year-old male dog of unknown breed. Despite his name, he is quite well behaved. He is calm, gentle, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands and politely takes treats. He likes being petted and giving kisses. Although he’s loving with humans, Wiggle Worm would do best as the only animal in the home. He was recently diagnosed with a heart murmur, and shelter staff will discuss managing this. For more information, call Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.
