Meet Miami, Our Pet of the Week

Miami (A1766546) is a 1 year & 2 month old, male red merle Catahoula Leopard Hound mix weighing 45 pounds. Miami is full of energy, talented, eager to please and a very handsome tall young guy. His owner died so he was in shock with his new surroundings and situation. His previous owner took good care of him as you can see by his gorgeous coat. He also already knows “sit”, “down” and shakes both paws!  He’s had a lot of life changes recently but now he’s ready and eager for his new home. He’d like an adult home where his people are on the active side. Morning and evening walks, hikes on the weekend, and play time in a big back yard with tall walls. He likes to chill sitting at your feet just “being” with you and sneak in a kiss. We’ve learned he doesn’t like cats and would be happiest an as your only fur-baby. Perhaps a little shy the first few moments ask to meet Miami in one of our large play yards where you can let him run some zoomies, chase a ball and show you his tricks. You will findMiami at the Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.
