Pet of the month: Camo
In an effort to help local shelter animals find a home, The Berkshire Eagle will be highlighting an adoptable pet the first weekend of every month. All pets will be chosen by the staff at the Berkshire Humane Society, where the pets can be adopted from.
Camo, a year- old male puppy with black and white spots, who came to the shelter when his family had to make a move and he couldn't go with them.
Camo is a big adolescent dog with an even bigger heart, but he still has plenty to learn. Camo can get a bit nervous when someone greets him and he will submissive urinate. But Camo is hoping with a little bit of time, and practice meeting new people, he will become more confident and this won't happen anymore. It's a little embarrassing for the pup!
Camo can also get overly excited and become jumpy and mouthy, which he is also working on with the kind staff at the shelter. The staff is working with him by having him sit for greetings, walk on a loose lead and direct his jumping and chewing for pen time and toys.
The playful pup is friendly, but he does not like kitty cats. Camo also has not had experience with dogs. Camo would love a home and to live with someone who will continue his training and guide him to become an excellent adult dog.
Camo wants to know: Where are the big dog lovers?
