Pet of the Week
This week meet Rome, who came to the SPCA of Texas on July 11 because his owners were moving and couldn’t take him with them. What a bummer.
Let’s meet this friendly, kid-loving pup who can’t wait to settle into his new home for the holidays.
Breed: Labrador mix
Age: 5 years
Weight: 66 pounds
Personality: Rome is a sweet guy who likes all people and other animals. Although he’d love to play with you, he’d love to snuggle even more. According to his previous owners, he’s a bit of a scaredy-cat. He likes to think of himself as a modern-day Scooby Doo, so maybe some Scooby Snacks will help make him brave.
Vital stats: Rome has been neutered and microchipped, and he has received all age-appropriate vaccinations.
Come meet Rome today (#132656) at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.
