Peet, hound

Peet is a darling male hound dog being kept at Independent Animal Rescue Inc.

Good news: He is already house-trained. He's already vaccinated and neutered.

From Peet's current caretaker:

Peet is a tricolor hound with the characteristic short fur. He has beautiful, soft floppy ears and his tail curls up. Peet is such a fun, happy and enthusiastic dog. He entertains himself (and us) by throwing his toys and balls in the air and then chasing them. At this point, Peet is generally shy and wary of adults at first -but once he trusts you, he wants to be right next to you.
