Featured Pet

Hi, my name is Bucky and I am a beagle mix, maybe with some Jack Russell. I was found as a stray in Edinboro. It is the same sad story of a lost or abandoned pet, but hey, enough of that gloom and doom. Look at me!!! I’m an adorable 17 lb bundle of energy who loves to go for walks, but I can easily settle down and take naps or just be mellow. I am a happy-go-lucky dog who is always in a good mood and will put you in a good mood too with my funny mix of colors and waggy tail. I love people and really just want to be a part of the family. I get along with dogs and have been around house cats. I know a couple commands and with some more training, I could learn a lot more. Please come to meet me, I really want a family to call my own and I know you will fall in love with me, cuz I’m that darn cute. Bucky
