Pet of the Week: Mikey

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Mikey, a labrador retriever mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Full of puppy love and the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet.

Mikey is an adorable 7 month old lab mix looking for his forever home, and is also looking for some key elements in his forever home.

Mikey is very shy and timid so another fun-loving yet confident canine friend is preferred, as well as a patient, calm family that is willing to go the extra mile allowing Mikey to decompress and readjust to a new home.

Having another canine companion would allow Mikey to learn and build confidence as he readjusts to new people, places and things. It took him some time to feel comfortable and safe at the shelter but now that he has little personality shines!

Transitioning to a new home is exciting, but also stressful for little guys like Mikey. Please allow Mikey 4-6 weeks at minimum to decompress and feel like part of your family.

Are you and Mikey a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
