Pet of the Week: 2022 Pets

Meet Broc! He’s a carefree two-year-old boy. Since he’s been at the shelter a little longer than most, the staff and volunteers have come to know him well, as well as his fun personality. He receives regular visits and usually keeps an eye out for everyone who passes by his lair so he can be sure to say hello!

Brock runs weekly runs with volunteers at Rock Creek Park and rides the car perfectly. He loves to run and walk in the park and honestly is just happy to be with him for the excitement.

On the playgrounds of the refuge, he is an extraordinary tennis ball hunter. Brock is happy to play fetch games with two or even three balls at a time. He also specializes in relaxing on the knees. If you sit down, Brock may just lean over and try to sit (partially!) on your lap. He likes to be close and longs for human contact and interaction. Does this sweet and affectionate pup sound like the right one for you?
